I believe the django-admin documentation page should mention how takes care of DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE instead of stating the fact. actually does not use DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE at all but always looks for in the current PYTHONPATH. I usually work with DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=settings_dev and the production included and overridden in this I always have to pass --settings=settings_dev to; this is not obvious from the documentation though.
