Silverlight 4 DataGrid Column Text not displaying

I have a Silverlight 4 Business Application using RIA Services.  in particular, two of the columns represent objects.  I'm trying to display the value of the columns with a Binding="{Binding Path=StatusOfJob.StatusId}" and the other as Text="{Binding Path=OtherRequest.OtherRequestText}".  Both of the colums show up as blank.  But oddly enough, they did work in a version of the application which was first constructed using VS 2010.  once i learned that SP1 was available, i installed it, and re-built my application using SP1.  The old version still works, but the new version (SP1) does not.

Any help would be most appreciated, and in the xaml, the two colums to look at are x:Name="OtherRequestName" and x:Name="statusColumn"
