Could you provide more details? Do you see any difference in behaviour comparing to previous versions?
It seems to be working for me.
It seems like it was working before (now using 3.2.4, but I was using a version from CVS, I think pre-RC1).
Basically , I have a table with many, many fields, and most of them are initialized in ejbCreate. It struck me as at least one string field was not set (did not particularly look at the other fields).
Need more details to reproduce. So far it works for me.
