I have a GenericForeignKey with custom field names ( http://pastebin.ca/1073849 ). I get an error when I use one of the GenericRelations, because it doesn't try to use this custom field name.
FieldError: Cannot resolve keyword 'content_type' into field. Choices are: author, channel, content, creation_time, id, object_id, parent_type, post, replies, title, update_time
Instead, it tries to use the default names. I think that's these lines in this paste: http://pastebin.ca/1074704 . It should be noted that at one point I did use the default names, but never really tested it, and ended up changing their names and deleting the db, recreating the db using syncdb. I am not aware of any other steps I should have taken.
I've tried asking around (in #django on irc.freenode.net) to see if I've missed anything, but nobody else knows, so this is my best guess for an error I can't otherwise explain.
