How do I search for mentions with JQL?

Hi all.

I've done some googling and turned up that I should be able to create search filters with strings like "text ~ currentUser()" or "(comment ~ currentUser() OR description ~ currentUser() OR summary ~ currentUser()", neither of which seem to work. If I replace currentUser with my actual username, it will return SOME of the issues where I'm mentioned but not nearly all of them. What gives? Anyone have more experience with this?

What if you try searching for

text ~ "\"[~username]\""

Does it return all issues?

It returns two more issues than text ~ rbelmont or text ~ currentUser. None of the above return the issue I mentioned myself in this morning to test.
