ImportError when trying to use newforms-admin with django.contrib.auth

Reported by: esaj Owned by: nobody
Component: Contrib apps Version: newforms-admin

The following error occurs when trying to use newforms-admin with django.contrib.auth:

Could not import django.contrib.auth.views. Error was: cannot import name UserCreationForm

This import is happening in django.contrib.auth.admin; if I add a try...except around the import to catch the ImportError it fixes it.

This happens when trying to view any page; it must be occurring during the initial loading of urlpatterns but I'm not sure what the fix should be.
