Ok So I have these two models:

class NewsPage extends Page {
static $has_many = array ('News' => 'News');
class News extends DataObject{
static $has_one = array('Parent'=>'NewsPage');

(I am omitting details, but there is nothing out of the ordinary, simply $db, $summary_fields, and getCMSFields()).

In my template, if I <% control News %>, I get 4 news. But there are 10.
If I add this function in my NewsPage:

	function News(){
		return DataObject::get('News','ParentID="'.$this->ID.'"');

It works. This has me quite baffled; isn't the automatic $NewsPage->News function supposed to be doing just that?
Note that if I call the function getNews() I get only 4 news again.

Also, I checked in the database and all News objects have a correct ParentID set.

If you set the site in dev mode, and then do a ?showqueries=1 you can at least take a look at the query and see wat it's doing...

Ok got it...Very stupid of me.
There is this customized Page class that I recycle across sites, and it has a News($number=4) function, usually for displaying stuff in sidebars.
