[Catalyst] has_many but no left join?!

Thanks Robert.

I've attempted to extract the relevant relationship from my code, though
when i use it i intend to group by and test for a not exists via matching a
null row with the left join.  I really need to have a left join in this
relationship. It appears to be working for other has_many relationships but
not under these circumstances. I wondered whether any knew of any
conditions that might prevent it from working.

Best wishes
