Sorry for double posting, but I just found out that this problem goes away  
if I use the third argument to has_many specifying which column in the  
foreign class references us (as documented). This implies that the code  
that checks the has_a relationships of the foreign class to find which  
column references us is not working correctly. To be more explicit with  
respect to the example below

if I say

C->has_many( all_Ds => 'D', 'C_id' );
dump $c_obj->all_Ds();

it works.

(I just noticed I mistyped in my previous email -- I'm not calling all_Ds  
on the class C)
