 I'm currently porting an application from Django 1.9.x to 1.10.x, we are
 relying on managers to attach signals to allow developers overriding them
 in our generic applications, this does not work anymore.

 A complete example:

 from django.db import models
 from django.db.models import signals

 class Poll(models.Model):
     question = models.CharField(max_length=255)
     answers_count = models.PositiveIntegerField(default=0)

 class AnswerManager(models.Manager):
     def contribute_to_class(self, cls, name):
         signals.post_save.connect(self.post_save, sender=cls)

         return super(AnswerManager, self).contribute_to_class(cls, name)

     def post_save(self, instance, **kwargs):
         poll = instance.poll
         poll.answers_count = poll.answers.count()
         poll.save(update_fields=('answers_count', ))

 class AbstractAnswer(models.Model):
     text = models.CharField(max_length=255)
     poll = models.ForeignKey(Poll, related_name='answers')

     objects = AnswerManager()

     class Meta:
         abstract = True

 class Answer(AbstractAnswer):
     class Meta:
         abstract = False

 class ModelsTests(TestCase):
     def test_simple_compute(self):
         poll = Poll.objects.create(question='Weird?')

         Answer.objects.create(poll=poll, text='Yes')

         # refresh
         poll = Poll.objects.get(pk=poll.pk)

         # still 0 on Django 1.10 and 1 on Django 1.9
         assert poll.answers_count == 1

 The complete application is available [[https://github.com/thoas/django-
 signals-wtf|here]] and travis is available [[https://travis-ci.org/thoas
 /django-signals-wtf/builds/167669153|here]] to test again both 1.10 and

 Is this some kind of undocumented new behavior or a bug?
