django.contrib.forms.UserCreationForm inheritence won't work

Reported by: Matías Lang Owned by: nobody

If I create a custom User model based on AbstractUser, i should also create a custom user creation form, inheriting from django.contrib.forms.UserCreationForm and defining the custom model I created in the Meta subclass. This won't work properly because UserCreationForm always use auth.User model when cleaning the username instead of the one defined in Meta.
This should be patched changing lines 101 and 102 of contrib/auth/, from this:
101 User._default_manager.get(username=username)
102 except User.DoesNotExist:
To this
101 self.Meta.model._default_manager.get(username=username)
102 except self.Meta.model.DoesNotExist:
