.NET web service client doesn't understand responses WITHOUT multiRef?

Hi. I created a web service (using Apache Axis) and a client for
accessing it (using .NET 1.1, C# and WSE2.0), and I noticed a strange
phenomenon: When the service sends it's responses using the multiref
method for serializing complex data types, the client receives them
without a problem. If I however set the service to send *without*
multiref, the .NET side seems to be no longer able to properly
deserialize the data, instead returning empty object references.
It's quite puzzling, especially since I've encountered various sources
during my own web research (while I was teaching myself how to create
web services) that Axis/.NET interop tends to have problems *with*
multirefs and that it was recommended to disable it...
Any ideas? Not that I would mind using the multiref method (even though
instinctively I'd suspect that the literal version might be a bit
easier/faster to deserialize for the client, and the numerous refs make
the tcp dumps a bit harder to read during debugging :), I just like to
understand what's going on.
