OC,

Did you created the M:N relationship using the modeler or you created it 
manually ?

These are tricky to correctly configure.

Your situation may be caused by an improper flattened relationship settings. 
The flattened relationships should have nothing checked in the Advanced pane of 
the modeler.

On my models, I always create them with the modeler and the relationships to 
the inner entity does not have "own relationship" checked but have the 
"Propagate primary key" checked.
