If you disable plugins entirely, then any postmeta info which doesn't
start with an underscore should still be visible in the "Custom
fields" box. Does the data disappear when this is the case as well?

Basically, try to figure out if it's the interaction between 3.6 and a
plugin by disabling all plugins and seeing if it happens on a clean

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.
