Dictionary with django object as key failing.

I'm using a dictionary to store a mapping between django objects and wxPython controls.

>>> print controls
controls = {
<MyObject: P001>: <wxTextCtrl instance at _08d89808_p_wxTextCtrl>,
<MyObject: P010>: <wxTextCtrl instance at _28449708_p_wxTextCtrl>,
<MyObject: P007>: <wxTextCtrl instance at _805f9808_p_wxTextCtrl>,
<MyObject: P006>: <wxTextCtrl instance at _78699b08_p_wxTextCtrl>,
<MyObject: P009>: <wxTextCtrl instance at _d8099a08_p_wxTextCtrl>,
<MyObject: P008>: <wxTextCtrl instance at _08ac9908_p_wxTextCtrl>,
<MyObject: P011>: <wxTextCtrl instance at _4834b008_p_wxTextCtrl>

I need to find the appropriate control fo a given value, but using the MyObject as key is behaving strangely:

>>> print value
<MyObject: P001>
>>> print controls[value]
KeyError: <MyObject: P001>
>>> print value in controls
>>> print value in controls.keys()
>>> for key, control in controls.items():
...     print "%r %r %r" % ( key == value, key, value)
True <MyObject: P001> <MyObject: P001>
False <MyObject: P001> <MyObject: P010>
False <MyObject: P001> <MyObject: P007>
False <MyObject: P001> <MyObject: P006>
False <MyObject: P001> <MyObject: P009>
False <MyObject: P001> <MyObject: P008>
False <MyObject: P001> <MyObject: P011>

If you're using Django 0.96, as indicated by the version you've selected for this ticket, this is the expected behavior; in Django 0.96, the base model implementation your model inherit from does not define the necessary methods to act as a dictionary key. In trunk this has changed, but if you need this functionality on 0.96, you can implement it explicitly on your model class.
