Problem Description: When working with a struct returned by a web service, the list of keys returned by StructKeyList does not corrrelate with the results returned  for each key by StructKeyExists. For example, the StructkeyList may show a key as existing, but StructKeyExists will return NO. Attempting to access the value under this key results in an error. A dump shows the key as existing, but having a value of "undefined"

Steps to Reproduce:

Create the following function in a CFC to be used as a webservice.

	<cffunction name="getTest" output="no" returntype="struct" access="remote">
		<cfargument name="appname" type="string" />

		<cfset result=structnew()>
				<cfset result.access = "public">
				<cfset result.timestamp = "time">
				<cfset result.parent = 1>
				<cfset result.fuseactions = ArrayNew(1)>
		<cfreturn result>

Now invoke the web service on some page

	returnvariable = "response"
	refreshWSDL = "true"
	appname = "tester"


<cfdump var="#response#">

<cfdump var="#structKeyList(response)#">
<cfdump var="#structkeyExists(response,'FUSEACTIONS')#">

Actual Result:

Structkeylist shows the FUSEACTIONS key as existing, as does a dump, but attempts to access the key result in an error. StructKeyExists returns NO.

Expected Result:

StructKeyExists should return YES.  A dump of the Struct should show an empty array, and not UNDEFINED.
