Fixtures should be loaded after migrations

It is currently not possible to add data for apps that have migrations in fixtures/initial_data.json because migrate command loads fixtures after syncdb but before migrations i.e. when required tables do not exist yet.
For example if one adds data for flatpages app in fixtures/initial_data like this:

    "fields": {
        "registration_required": false,
        "title": "foo",
        "url": "/url/",
        "template_name": "",
        "sites": [1],
        "content": "bar",
        "enable_comments": false
    "model": "flatpages.flatpage",
    "pk": 1

running " migrate" on new DB will result in:

    return Database.Cursor.execute(self, query, params)
django.db.utils.OperationalError: Problem installing fixture '/home/user/project/fixtures/initial_data.json': Could not load flatpages.FlatPage(pk=1): no such table: django_flatpage

This breaks DB creation on " test" as well.
Correct behaviour would be to install initial_data.json AFTER tables for apps with migrations are created as well.
