On this setting, I get an exception when django tries to introspect the app label for models.MyModel. I suppose I could fix this by manually specifying an app_label on every model, but that's an ugly solution.

It looks like the Django project setup is setting the test framework
type on the file manage.py specifically (in the file properties for that
file) and not project-wide. You should see manage.py in the Testing
tool without altering the project properties and right clicking to run
tests should run all the tests run by 'manage.py test'. Then you can
click specific ones to run just those (but the initial discovery of
tests requires running the whole test suite).
If you're not trying to run 'manage.py tests' you probably want a
different configuration, although from what you write I'm not sure of
Please let me know if this does not help.
