[bioontology-support] duplicate relations showing in FlexoViz.html graph viewer

Hi Doug and Trish,
I've comented on the bug report that is entered in our system (see the link
below), but to summarize what I said:
The error is in the rest services, not in FlexViz.  
The relationship from central nervous system to motor axons peripheral is
"part_of", see this XML:
And the relationship from motor axons peripheral to central nervous system
is "part of", see this XML:
FlexViz will only show one relationship if they are the same type, but in
this case it is not smart enough to realize that there is an error in the
ontology and "part of" and "part_of" are actually the same thing.

I'm using the FlexoViz.html to view the zebrafish anatomy ontology.
Looking at the term 'motor axons peripheral' (which has it's own problems!),
the graph seems to show two 'part of' relations.  One is labeled 'part of'
and one 'part_of'.  Ditto for 'develops_from' and 'develops from'.

Is this a bug in the FlexoViz.html or maybe something strange in our
ontology format?
