One mystery resolved.

>From django/core/management/commands/loaddata.py line 297:

        elif fixture_name == 'initial_data' and fixture_files:
                'initial_data fixtures are deprecated. Use data migrations

Under python2, the fixture_name contains u'initial_data', so the if
condition fails.

Under python3, the fixture_name contains 'initial_data', so the if
condition succeeds.

This is no doubt because the tests/fixtures/tests.py file contains "from
__future__ import unicode_literals" at the very top.

Still not sure why this only recently became an issue in unstable.
