[wp-hackers] Missing postmeta after 3.6 upgrade

Thanks for the response Otto. I am actually using Sequel Pro to check the records in the database as opposed to the WP interface. I don't believe it's a plugin causing the issue, as a second WP instance isn't having this problem. The difference between the two instances is that the one having the issue is the one that users interact with, which leads me to believe this is related to the changes made to the post revision system.

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.
