Migrate can't create ManyToManyField for Model migrated in the same run

I have a fresh database and created the inital migrations.

When trying to apply the migrations with 'migrate <appname>', I get

django.db.utils.ProgrammingError: (1146, "Table '<WEBSITENAME>.django_content_type' doesn't exist")

Makes sense so far as django_content_type is from another app.

Running 'migrate' (without app name) runs through my first app OK.
When it runs through the migrations for the second app, I get

ValueError: Related model 'appname.Modelname' cannot be resolved

I checked the spelling in the migrations inital file, it's fine.

The Model with the field which gives the error contains 2 ManyToManyFields, let's call them A and B for convenience. They are identical except for the model they reference.

Field A relates to a model from a third app,
which has not been handled by migrations by then.
Field B relates to a model from the first app.

In the migrations file (and the model), Field A is mentioned first and gives no errors.
Field B is mentioned after Field A and raises the ValueError.

The django_content_type bug sounds like a duplicate of #22411.

This might be a duplicate of some other ticket, but it's difficult to say. A minimal project (or ideally a test for Django's test suite) would be really helpful.

I tried reproducing the second issue this based on the given info but could not. Please reopen if you can reproduce on the latest master or 1.7.x with additional details.
