undocumented problems with Multi-table inheritance and Admin

The admin interface is not working with multi-table inheritance, seemingly because admin uses old-forms. It seems unlikely that it will be fixed on trunk, but rather in the newforms-admin branch and then merged up.
As this bug is not going to be fixed imminently, many users will be encountering it and trying to debug it. It would be nice not to waste their time, and let them know this is a known issue in the Multi-table inheritance documentation.
