The difference is that the autocompleter for shell is introspecting the 
live runtime state of the python process for the shell while the 
autocompleter for the document is using static analysis to understand 
the code without running it.  Because of this, the two often differ. 
The document autocompleter will introspect the live runtime state of any 
active debug process, but not of the shell.

Are you getting autocomplete choices for any of your django modules?  If 
not, the problem could be your python path.
