Many:1 feature class / object class relationships viewed in ArcMap

    Unfortunately when many:1 relationships are created between feature classes and object classes and when using the Attributes dialog in ArcMap a user can navigate from the feature class down through related object classes and then back up through the "other" related (many:1) feature classes. This is very confusing for users and, I don't believe, useful functionality. This might sound like a bug but I believe it's as it is designed, I'm just not sure this is useful for anyone... it certainly reduces the desire to have many to 1 relationships in your database design which shouldn't be the case.
