If you make a boneheaded move such as creating a ModelAdmin class for a model that you forgot to include in your's model import statement, you get an error. But it's not the error you might expect. What happens is you get the "model already registered exception", citing the first model registered using

I spent awhile looking around my app trying to see if I had indeed registered the model in question more than once via imports, but couldn't find it. When I fixed my error in the import statement, everything was fine.

So definitely user error. But the error message Django displayed didn't help guide me to the problem.
