Description (last modified by mtredinnick)

the code:

class SomeMiddleware:
    def process_request(self, req):
        print type(req.user)
        print type(req.user.__str__())
        print req.user.__str__().__class__
        print req.user
        return None

prints out

<class 'django.contrib.auth.models.AnonymousUser'>
<type 'instance'>

I thought we'd fixed this. Apparently I am confused, though, and it is only fixed on the Unicode branch.

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

(In [5590]) Fixed #4751 -- Fixed that AnonymousUser.str to always return a string
object, as required by Python.
