[wp-hackers] Missing postmeta after 3.6 upgrade

It's kind of a weird issue to explain. It occurs when clicking on a post to edit it. Clicking on a post to edit brings up the edit post screen, where the postmeta fields are then blank. 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.
If I restore the post to a previous state via an available autosave or revision then the postmeta is restored, and subsequent clicks to edit the record do not cause the postmeta to be deleted.
