@Any mapping fails during configuration: "@Any requires an explicit @JoinColumn(s)"

Description

When I try to apply the @Any annotation, I get the following exception:

ERROR [org.jboss.kernel.plugins.dependency.AbstractKernelController] Error installing to Start: name=persistence.units:jar=test-build.jar,unitName=blueserve state=Create
org.hibernate.AnnotationException: @Any requires an explicit @JoinColumn(s): com.builderadius.blueserve.model.Note.noteOwner

See the forum posting http://forum.hibernate.org/viewtopic.php?p=2403045 for another description of this problem. That thread suggests the problem is with EJB3OverridenAnnotationReader not adding properties annotated with @JoinColumn if xml mapping files exist.

My code is:

@Any(metaColumn = @Column(name = "RelatedRecType"))
@AnyMetaDef(idType = "integer", metaType = "string", metaValues = {
@MetaValue(targetEntity = Approval.class, value = "approval"),
@MetaValue(targetEntity = ZoningPermit.class, value = "zoningpermit") })
@JoinColumn(name = "RelatedRecNum", nullable = false)
public BlueserveEntity getNoteOwner()
{
return this.noteOwner;
}

An orm.xml file (auto-generated by seam-gen) exists in this project, though it has no entity mappings and there are no other hbm.xml files. When I remove this file, I no longer receive the exception (that's not a long-term solution).
