BUG #: 14161 (Plato7x)

Symptoms
When you try to obtain the custom member property of a parent-child dimension level and you query the third level or higher, the custom member property returns null if you are using the OpenSchema method. If you use Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) to query for the same custom property, the correct value is returned.
