Given this model where Pizza refers to ItalianRestaurant which is inherited from Restaurant:
class Restaurant(models.Model): # ... class ItalianRestaurant(Restaurant): # ... class Pizza(models.Model): restaurant = models.ForeignKey(ItalianRestaurant)
Queries to Pizza with select_related don't join Restaurant table and try to attach its fields to ItalianRestaurant table instead. Which results in wrong SQL.
Patch with tests follows. Though I believe that the patch is correct, logic of fill_related_selections seems to play on coincidental similarities between parent links and ordinary links and it may be better to refactor those into separate code paths. But I didn't penetrate it deep enough to do it.
