Has anyone ever seen a Publishing site "lose" the properties relating to the publishing functionality. Properties like
PublishingFeatureActivated etc which actually control whether the publishing functionality provided in the site actions menu works e.g. Create a page, edit navigation.
I have come across this for a second time and am struggling to understand how the properties could have been removed/lost/delete from the site. Running commands to add the properties back to the Root SPWeb will fix the issue (have tested and fixed one with this issue before) but I am keen to find out if anyone else has come across the issue before.
BTW I saw a blog entry from someone that fixed this by de/reactivating the Publishing features for the site/web but that never worked for me. I had to find all the missing properties on the root web by comparing it with another publishing site and add them back in via the OM.
