Setting DEBUG=False breaks voting

Hi, I'm trying to deploy askbot to heroku (with memcachier). All is working fine except when you try to upvote anything, an error occurs (with a red dialog that says):

invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'True'

But that only occurs when DEBUG is set to False. Is there any way to solve this other than leaving the server in debug mode?

Heroku logs doesn't show any sort of error reporting (I'm making logs go to stdout instead of a file).

Your issue might be specific to your deployment - have you used any non-default configurations?

Tried and could not reproduce. Maybe your static files are not served correctly? Did you ran python collectstatic?

Is your webserver configured to serve static files?
