Aspects Missing from FindItemsAdvanced Response

When specifying aspects in the FindItemsAdvanced request, they're removed from the AspectHistogramContainer in the subsequent response.


This effectively means if you add an aspect for say "colour=blue+green" (of which there are currently 10 results for each, identified by the "count" field) then subsequently add an aspect of "size=7". The AspectHistogramContainer in the response no longer contains either the colour or size aspect, meaning you can't update the counts for the colour aspect (for example based on choosing size 7, it may be that there is now only 1 result for colour=blue and no results for green and so it should be removed from the UI).


This effectively makes it impossible to do what eBay are saying you can do with aspects in the documentation (and what their website does) where it displays all aspects and updates the result count and availability of previously selected aspects as more and more aspects are selected, because their values are no longer contained in subsequent responses.


This seems to make aspect searching pretty useless, has anyone else come across this problem and managed to work around it?
