please be a bit more specific: We would need to see the objects graph that comes back from the JSON deserialization. At the moment I guess, that the referenced entities are either not passed back, hence are null or that there are duplicate references to the same instance. But I cannot give a definitive answer until we have a reproduction of the issue. Can you provide us (through support) with one?
