Item.LotSize property is ignored in AddFixedPriceItem, and Lot Size defaults to 1

AddFixedPriceItem is called with Item.LotSize = 5 ( or any number >1 ), but the resulting eBay listing defaults to no-lot ( as if the lot property was not being used at all). "(5 items per lot)" is not displayed in the listing page. Manually editing the listing in eBay shows that the listing defaulted to NO-LOT and the lot box is not visible. Manually enabling the feature by choosing "sell several items as a *lot* ", causes the lot box to appear. But it does not appear in response to the Item.LotSize >1 property. Am i missing something? Does the "lot" feature need to be enabled somewhere else before it can be used?

I know this is really old, but I was recently looking at lotsize and whether or not to use it. One thing I noticed and something for people to check for issues like this is that the fieldindex page doesn't show addfixedpriceitem as an option for lotsize. You may have to use additem instead. Guess I'll find out if I ever implement lots in listings.
