As far as i remember, the problem is if we have a mapping:
B extends A - mapped in same db table

toA, cArray (from C to A and vice versa) - Is Mandatory

objRel - toA, cArray (from C to A and vice versa)

So, there's isn't any ObjRel from B to C and therefore Cayenne adds runtime
Problems come when we're setting relationship via C.setToA(..) and commit.
Cayenne thinks runtime rel from C to B is mandatory (after all, it's mapped
to mandatory dbRel) and fails to commit.
Not sure why I haven't added test maps when committing, maybe I haven't
managed to create one.
We need to investigate this futher, so please hold on reverting the patch
