[wp-hackers] Missing postmeta after 3.6 upgrade

So that worked. What I did was export the WP database, import it into a new schema, deleted all post revisions with their respective postmeta, and then updated wp-config.php to point to the new schema. That fixed the problem of the vanishing postmeta.
To me this sounds like a bug with the new revision system, but the Codex suggests getting feedback before opening a ticket by emailing this list, among other things.
Anyone have feedback about filing this as a ticket?

Looking at the database the postmeta is in the postmeta table, but once I click on the record to edit it, once the edit screen loads the postmeda fields are gone from the db. It's as though some action is being called upon loading the edit screen that is deleting the post meta. Definitely a head scratcher.
