sql sequence reset misses the m2m tables

The sql sequence reset code in misses the tables that are generated for the many to many fields.

For example, my Word model is many to many to my Meaning model. Now I have tables "words", "meanings" and "words_meanings". I also have the sequences "words_id_seq", "meanings_id_seq" and "words_meanings_id_seq". I invalidate my id sequences somehow, maybe by manually loading some data into the db, so I have to run the commands given by the get_sql_sequence_reset function. Now the "words_id_seq" and "meanings_id_seq" get fixed, but "words_meanings_id_seq" is still wrong.

This is more a fault of postgresql than django, but it would be nice if the sequence_reset code also worked for those of us with m2m fields in our models.

In trying to find a fix for this I noticed that the MODEL._meta.get_all_related_many_to_many_objects() method also doesn't work, at least not for my models. Maybe this is also related to ticket #452. (#452 is much more important than this ticket)
