Why does ReviseItem return the following Deposit error even though I am not modifying the deposit amount?

<Errors>

  <

Summary

This is a product limitation.  Even if the item does not have any deposit amount specified, and you make a call to ReviseItem just to lower the ReservePrice, the call returns the warning for Deposit Type/Amount.  This  happens only when there are bids on the item.  Even though you receive this warning, it does revise the ReservePrice correctly.  Please ignore this warning if the ReviseItem call follows all the guidelines for revising an item.



Detailed Description

Here is an example of a ReviseItem call that can trigger this warning:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<
ReviseItemRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
  <
Version>485</Version>
  <
Item>
    <
ItemID>110010007414</ItemID>
    <
ReservePrice>11000</ReservePrice>
  </
Item>
  <
RequesterCredentials>
    <
eBayAuthToken>*****</eBayAuthToken>
  </
RequesterCredentials>
</
ReviseItemRequest>

Even with this request, if the Item has a bid, you will see the warning about the Deposit.
