If EntityA has a persistent property of type StructureA, then when an instance of EntityA is created, I would expect that the constructor for StructureA to be called... but it is not.

Fixed it... I thought that if you create EntityA, then DO will automatically create an instance of StructureA...

But apparently one must do: MyProperty = new StructureA() in the constructor of EntityA

That's right. DataObjects.Net doesn't instantiate instances of persistent types by calling their public constructors. It calls protected constructors injected via PostSharp on post-compilation step instead.
