Missing Info with Pages.GetInfo

I'm trying to access the info in the pages of a user from a desktop application. When I try:

listOfFields.Clear()
listOfFields.Add("name")
listOfFanPages = fbserviceToUse.Api.Pages.GetInfo(listOfFields, Nothing, )

 I get back page_id's but no values. The XML being returned by Facebook is:

<pages_getInfo_response xmlns=\"" xmlns:xsi=\"" xsi:schemaLocation=\" list=\"true\">
<page>
   <page_id>342860253711</page_id>
   <anon>name</anon>
 </page>
 <page>
    <page_id>53523601754</page_id>
    <anon>name</anon>
  </page>
  <page>
    <page_id>356318848764</page_id>
    <anon>name</anon>\n </page>
</pages_getInfo_response>

The particular user I accessed for this example did have 3 pages, so that part seems right and the returned page_id's are legal and the correct ones.

 I have also used fieldnames from Pages.Getfields with the same sort of results. As a matter of fact, I can substitute "totalgarbage" for "name" and will get back

<anon>totalgarbage</anon>

 I checked with the Restful Api and "name" should be a acceptable value. Any suggestions anybody? Is this a known bug?

Thanks, Cybereeyor

Just one more thing - I've been accessing users and friends of users via my fbserviceToUse for a couple of months - no problems there.
