P.S. I've found it by comparing #3263 patch and svn code

Could you write a patch to the unit tests in tests/modeltests/model_forms/

Adrian, sorry, it seems to be my mistake.
#3257 required clean_data to contain ForeignKey object (for example Writer object for Article, if we speak about unittests in tests/modeltests/model_forms/, your current changes require it to contain ForeignKey object's id, so my code, based on #3257, failed and I sent this patch to fix it.
Is there any page that could explain your vision of future features to not make such mistakes again ? For example, I sent the patch #3370 (mysql should set 'charset': 'utf8' to connection attributes), with this patch my app works ok but 8 tests fail (db returns unicode), without it all tests passed but in my app i see a mess of national charset and unicode strings on one page.
