if the user deletes the page in CMS, he/she can see the readonly version of the Live page. However, it the Page has some relationship (e.g. has_many) to another DataObjects and shows this objects in a tab in CMS, then DataObject::get() does not work well, because the Versioned::$reading_stage is not set to 'Live'. I made the following correction to the CMSMain.php. May it the break something?

- if($record) $record->DeletedFromStage = true;

return $record;

Maybe better solution to Versioned::reading_stage('Live'); is

Thanks, I've applied this to the 2.1 code.
