Why does FindItemsAdvanced sometimes misreports information in the SellerInfo conatiner? 

The FindItemsAdvanced sometimes sends null values in the SellerInfo conatiner. This happens specially when we call this API programatically in a loop to get 100's of pages

of item data. At the moment this is a limitation at eBay's end.

We recommend that the users make a check in their application to see if a tag in the SellerInfo like <feedbackScore> to see ith the value is 0.0 or  <feedbackRatingStart> is null

and retry the same request.

 if (null ==searchResult.item.sellerInfo.feedbackRatingStar) {

       //retry the request

 }
