FileField joins MEDIA_ROOT with FileDict

The _get_FIELD_filename function in Model class joins MEDIA_ROOT with the FIELD's value, which is, apparently a FileDict. If I get the filename value out of the dict, the function appears to work properly. Below is a sample error:

  File "/home/cpinto/programs/python/django/db/models/", line 436, in _get_FIELD_filename
    return os.path.join(settings.MEDIA_ROOT, getattr(self, field.attname))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/", line 60, in join
    if b.startswith('/'):
AttributeError: 'FileDict' object has no attribute 'startswith'

The proposed patch should fix this.
