I have posted an article regarding the subject of this mail on the list 
earlier. Just to recap the problem......I have created an extension using 
kickstarter. This extension creates a new table say 'testatble' and has a 
field say 'testfield' .In the type_field i have one of the fields of this 
table selected say(display_record:Record). I have taken care to uncheck the 
' Is  Exclude field ' checkbox for all fields so that they can be edited by 
all backendusers.The problem was that record from this table for editing was 
not displaying any fields.

After much hit and trial i have noticed that when i create a record for this 
table in the backend it displays the form for creation of a record for the 
table.Now i enter all/some field values including the 'display_record' 
field(Suppose i enter xyz for display_record'). When i try to save this 
record , it dislays a javascript message saying 'This  change will affect 
which fields are availbale in the form. Would you like to save  now in order 
to refresh the display?' when i click yes the screen refreshes to a screen 
where no fields are displayed for either viewing or editing.The 
Web>>List>>Some sysfolder displays an entry for the table by the name of 
'xyz' but on clicking the pencil icon for editing the  record fields no 
fields are displayed. On the contrary,,, when i again create a record on 
this table by enetering values for everyother field other than ' 
display_record' and  now save the record,the screen refreshes to an edit 
form where fields are available for viewing and ediitng. The Web>>List>>Some 
sysfolder  displays this record of the table as '[No title]' but on clicking 
the pencil icon against it, the edit form opens up where fields are 
displayed for editing.

may be, this is could help:

in the Kickstarter > New Database Tables
set  'Type-field', if any: [none]
