I am using the FinancialForce Metadata API to retrieve a Layout of an object Foo.
For some reason, the object that I am getting back is missing items in its RelatedListItem array.
I have a Related List present in my layout visually in the Salesforce GUI, yet the Metadata call comes back with a null array.
Stranger yet, it only seems to happen to this object. Placing the same Related List on object Bar's layout and querying it using Metadata API yields a correct array.
What is happening and how can I fix this?
