GetFeedback used to return the TransactionID even for Chinese items, but I don't see it anymore now. Has something changed?

Summary

It was a bug that GetFeedback used to return a non-zero TransactionID, even for items with the Chinese ListingType.  However, for Chinese items, the TransactionID is always zero.  This incorrect information in the GetFeedback call was misleading and our recommendation was to ignore the TransactionID for Chinese auction type items.  Since early February 2007, the issue was fixed and the call no longer returns the TransactionID for Chinese items.  This change is version independent - which means that you will no longer get the TransactionID for Chinese Items, even if you make the call with an older version like 447.
