[bioontology-support] Potential bug on bioportal ontology details view

Actually the visualisation is correct. The terms not appearing are all  
"children" of CHEBI:39116 and this explains the direction of the arrow  
id: CHEBI:34911
name: permethrin
synonym: "(3-Phenoxyphenyl)methyl  
RELATED [ChemIDplus:]
synonym: "Permethrin" EXACT [KEGG COMPOUND:]
synonym: "3-phenoxybenzyl  
3-(2,2-dichloroethenyl)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropanecarboxylate" EXACT  
synonym: "3-(2,2-Dichloroethenyl)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carboxylic  
acid, (3-phenoxyphenyl) methyl ester" RELATED [ChemIDplus:]
synonym: "CC1(C)C(C=C(Cl)Cl)C1C(=O)OCc1cccc(Oc2ccccc2)c1" RELATED  
"InChI=1/C21H20Cl2O3/c1-21(2)17(12-18(22)23)19(21)20(24)25-13-14-7-6-10-16(11-14)26-15-8-4-3-5-9-15/h3-12,17,19H,13H2,1-2H3" RELATED InChI  
xref: KEGG COMPOUND:52645-53-1 "CAS Registry Number"
xref: ChemIDplus:52645-53-1 "CAS Registry Number"
relationship: has_role CHEBI:39116
relationship: has_role CHEBI:39259
relationship: has_functional_parent CHEBI:39308
relationship: has_role CHEBI:33286
relationship: has_role CHEBI:38956)

In fact this term is not appearing at all in the ontology details  
view. And this is the case with other terms not only in ChEBI. I  
recently submitted IDOMAL to bioportal and this exactly what is  
happening with the terms related with has_role relation to others.

Thanks for your reply
