See this code:

MyEntity e = Query.All<myentity>().First();

var arr = e.OtherEntities.ToArray(); //OtherEntities is EntitySet<t> property; say we have 100 items in this collection

foreach(var item in arr) //the array is of length 100, but only first 32 items are non-null, others are null Console.Write(item.Text); //this enumerates to 32 items, then you get NullReferenceExeception

a workaround is to use e.OtherEntities.Where(i=>true).ToArray() .. then it retuns all 100 non-null items in the array

Definitely a bug. We'll try to fix it ASAP on Monday.

One Answer:

The bug was fixed today - it looks like someone of us occasionally removed an important part of logic during EntitySetBase refactoring. Now it's there again.

Nightly build containing the fix will be available in the morning.
