newforms fails when trying to validate a form where a field is named data. If this is a feature, it should be better documented.
If this is not a feature, then here is the reason for the bug:
Internally newforms stores form data in a variable called clean_data and data, you can not have a field called data in your form.
This is a problem since I find that the name data is useful for several types of fields ;)
The problem should easily be solvable if clean_data (and data) are renamed to clean_form_data or something like that.
