This seems like a non-ideal fix for me, as it is not part of the new user signup flow and seems to be a bug, but hopefully it will get folks working in the interim**

What version are you running?
Django 1.6
Apache MPM-Prefork 2.4
mod_wsgi 3.3
Ubuntu 14.04 

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a new user and add them as "staff" and "superuser"
2. Login as newly created user
3. Attempt to access "admin" panel

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The Admin panel is expected. Instead, I receive "500 Internal Server Error" and the log output pasted in "additional information" below.

What operating system are you using? What browser?

OS X 10.10
Chrome 41.0.2272.010 

Please provide any additional information below:
