I have not confirmed this, but it appears that the slice filter code is not catching AssertionError, which can be raised when an offset is specified without a limit. From django/db/models/

        # LIMIT and OFFSET clauses
        if self._limit is not None:
            sql.append("%s " % backend.get_limit_offset_sql(self._limit, self._offset))
            assert self._offset is None, "'offset' is not allowed without 'limit'"

If this is indeed the case, then this ticket should be changed to make the slice filter fail silently since there is already a ticket for slicing to the end of a QuerySet (#2150).

Well, this is the traceback I get whether the QuerySet is empty or not:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  741. result = node.render(context)

  550. assert self._offset is None, "'offset' is not allowed without 'limit'"

  AssertionError at /lab/items/
  'offset' is not allowed without 'limit'

but now that I think of it, we probably don't want this error to fail silently since it's an unsupported feature with QuerySets, and is not really the fault of the filter.

My error doesn't appear to be the same one you are seeing. If you could, please post more information. The full traceback, the query you are assigning to films, and the generated SQL would be great. Without that, closing this ticket as invalid as I am unable to reproduce the error you are seeing.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
