Based on the 4.4 manual, I would expect the following to work:

Protected Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Init
    Dim gigrequests As IEnumerable(Of GigRequest) =
            OrderBy(Function(gig) gig.EventDate).
            Prefetch(Function(gig) gig.Leads.
                Prefetch(Function(lead) lead.Performer))

    For Each gig As GigRequest In gigrequests
        ' ...
End Sub

But I receive a NotSupportedException with the following stack trace:

[NotSupportedException: Only persistented property access, calls of Prefetch method or anonymous type constructors are supported, but found 'Convert(gig.Leads)' expression.]
   Xtensive.Orm.Internals.Prefetch.NodeParser.Visit(Expression e) +209

   System.Web.UI.Control.InitRecursive(Control namingContainer) +140
   System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint) +480

Client, GigRequest, Lead and Performer are entities. Lead acts as a ternary table between requests and performers, with a foreign key to each. GigRequest.Leads is an EntitySet. The goal is to load all of the graph Client -> GigRequests -> Leads -> Performer.

The error is encountered in both 4.4 and 4.5-beta4 (7725). DataObjects is being used here with a legacy database, so the classes are on the messy side, but I can post snippets if requested.

I am open to work-arounds and happy to provide more information. Please advise.
