TypeError when edit_inline and Multiple ForeignKeys to same model breaks the admin

This is almost a duplicate of #1939, however, I am getting a TypeError instead of a KeyError.

Minimal example (a commenter to #2522 had the same use case in mind):

from django.db import models

class Node(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField('Name', maxlength=30, unique=True)   
    def __str__(self):
    class Admin:

class Link(models.Model):
    from_node=models.ForeignKey(Node, related_name='has_links_to', edit_inline=True)
    to_node=models.ForeignKey(Node, related_name='has_links_from', core=True)
    strength=models.FloatField('Strength', max_digits=3, decimal_places=2, core=True)

Trying to add a Node through the Admin gives this traceback (SVN r5061):

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\cygwin\home\Dan\src\django_src\django\template\" in render_node
  723. result = node.render(context)
File "C:\cygwin\home\Dan\src\django_src\django\template\" in render
  125. nodelist.append(node.render(context))
File "C:\cygwin\home\Dan\src\django_src\django\contrib\admin\templatetags\" in render
  170. bound_related_object = relation.bind(context['form'], original, bound_related_object_class)
File "C:\cygwin\home\Dan\src\django_src\django\db\models\" in bind
  129. return bound_related_object_class(self, field_mapping, original)

  TypeError at /admin/ntwk/node/add/
  'bool' object is not callable

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

As expected, this is fixed with the merge of newforms-admin. I verified using my own models (I had to specify the 'fk_name' attribute on my inline class), and everything saves without error.

I am marking this as "worksforme" rather than "fixed" since I'm not the original reporter. Dan, feel free to move this ticket to "fixed", or alternatively the developers are welcome to do so as well.
