google-app-engine-django loading fixtures

I'm having troubles loading fixtures on GAE with google-app-engine-django. I receive an error that says "DeserializationError: Invalid model identifier: 'fcl.User'"

./ loaddata users

I'm trying to load a fixture that has the following data:

- model: fcl.User
    firstname: test
    lastname: testerson
    user_id: '981167207188616462253'
    status: active
    usertype: player
    creationtime: '2010-08-29 00:00:00'

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

after fixing this, it works. I also needed to put a valid pk: value in my fixture.
