I am starting the Careless Development series where I post a little issue that started as a problem solving and ended up being an oversight issue. Utter disappointment! It took me some time to inspect Pycharm inside and out, so here it is.
I should say that the bigger the project, the more it happens. But enough of self-justification.
Pycharm in particular likes fetching Django console spontaneously (while I’m copy-and-pasting things in project tree). After runserver:
Performing system checks...
