I have the same symptoms, objects dont display in a folder subclass, but are
Heres how I fixed it:

Your base class must be the last in the class inheritance list.  You must
add all other base classes first.  This will almost always be a problem
because most base classes start with ZClass... and will be last
alphabetically.  (this will be much easier to fix if/when you can change, or
at least reorder, the base classes of an object)
eg: ZObject, ZObjectManager, CatalogAwareBase, MyBaseClass

If you have a complicated object, I think you can export it in XML, reorder
the base classes, & reimport.  But adding/removing classes this way doesn't
update the management interface tabs.
