Pass the current instead of the previous frozen ORM to
backwards() in new data migrations.
Before always the previous migration's frozen ORM was used when migrating
backwards. But that became a big issue for data migrations that need additional
apps (given with --freeze). See #428.

 relationships, but if you want to add other models in, simply pass ``--freeze appname``
 to the ``./ datamigration`` command.
+Also note that the ``backwards()`` method gets the ORM as frozen by the previous
+migration except for migrations that define ``symmetrical = True`` (new in South 1.0)

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
