This was a bug in our JSON deserialization code.

We recently pulled in the fix as part of the latest version of the ServiceStack.Text, so it shouldn't happen any more.


It's still happening. The ServiceStack fix didn't actually fix it. Stay tuned.


We just deployed with ServiceStack.Text 3.9.3, and I confirmed that the bug is actually fixed this time.

    This is happening again, see Tim Cooper's edit to OP.
