Question about relatedList tag and custom objects

I have created two custom objects (Obj 1, Obj 2) that are linked via a lookup field (Obj 2 lookup to Obj 1).  I've added the Obj 2 related list to the page layout for Obj 1 and added several additional fields (field b, field c, etc.) , from Obj 2 to the related list displayed fields.
When I reference the related list via the <apex:relatedList> tag on a VF page the additional fields that I added to the related list (field b, field c, etc.) do not show up.  The documentation led me to believe that related lists displayed on VF pages obtain their content from the defined page layout for the object.
This is a known problem; we expect it to be fixed before Visual Force becomes generally available.
thanks...I'll sit tight.
