[patch] Filters no longer parsed for unresolved variables

Changeset [3268] made the following change for the resolve method in django/template/

-            obj = settings.TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID
+            if ignore_failures:
+                return None
+            else:
+                return settings.TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID

Because TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID is returned now rather than being set in obj (which is then passed to any filters), the filters are not parsed on an unresolved variable.
This changes the behaviour of the default and default_if_none filters.

I believe the last line of that patch should have been:

+                obj = settings.TEMPLATE_STRING_IF_INVALID

Perhaps the return None line should change as well, but it's just used in testing at the moment.
