For ManyToMany manager, we should convert objects being added or removed to the pk type if they are not.

class A(models.Model): name = models.CharField(blank=True) class B(models.Model): a = models.ManyToManyField(A) a = A(name='aaa') a.save() b = B() b.save() # This line works fine: b.a.add('1') # But this one will raise 'Duplicate entry' error: b.a.add('1')
This is caused by '1' is not an integer, the duplication checking code in add() fails when checking the string type '1'.
The same problem is applied to the remove() method.
If we convert the objects to its pk type of the model, code will run correctly.
And my patch is attached.
