unique fields won't be validated by .is_valid() in NewForms form_for_models

I have some unique-Fields in my models.py. I use form_for_models and form_for_instance to build my forms to populate my DB. For validation I use .is_valid():
if request.method == 'POST': f = ServerForm(request.POST) if f.is_valid(): saveobject = f.save()
If I test this by trying to add a duplicate entry, I get a "duplicate key violates unique constraint" instead of the expected error-message in my forms as for the other validation.
