Are you sure that they have nothing to do with each other?
I've seen (in the code) that the fitness is stored in an Individual and SizeFairCrossover handles these Individuals. I haven't tested other BreedingPipelines yet, but I also don't want to use a different pipeline, because it's better for my rules if I use SizeFairCrossoverBreeding.

fitness doesn't have anything to do with SizeFairCrossover, and certainly has nothing to do with the dump below. Did you try replacing SizeFairCrossover with some other crossover? I'm afraid I cannot answer your question.
