Steps to reproduce would be great. Deleting data is a critical bug and
deleting postmeta is also highly noticeable, yet this is the only report
I've seen, despite 1.5 million downloads and the 3.6 codebase having been
running on WordPress.com for months.

I'm not saying it isn't happening to you, I'm just saying it's certainly
not happening for everyone, so we'd need to figure out why.
