This problem won't exhibit itself in 3.0.5.  The 'migrating' state is no
longer needed.

Either migration will work or it won't; no more half-migrations or
wedged 'migrating' states.

There are still a couple of bits to clean up around error checking when
migrations fail; whether this makes 3.0.5 I can't say for sure.
