JIRA JQL: assignee was xxx during (date1, date2) returns incorrect results

I am using JIRA 4.4.5. I am trying use JQL to find issues that was assigned to a user: xxxx during a specific period of time.

I have this JQL:

assignee was xxxx DURING ("2014/01/01", "2014/01/31")

First question:

The result set includes closed issues from 2013, I double checked and opened up those issues from 2013 and they have no change history in 2014 at all. Anyone expereinced the same thing? What could be wrong? Is it a bug?

Second question:

Will the JQL above returns issues assigned to xxxx on 2013/12/01 and are still assign to xxxx today (no assignee change between those dates)?
I am aware of JQL's CHANGED TO, but doing 'assignee changed to xxxx DURING ("2014/01/01", "2014/01/31")' won't be right becuase I also want to include issues assigned to xxxx on 2013/12/01 and are still assign to xxxx today.

Thanks in advance.

AND assignee was not xxxx before "2014/01/01" AND assignee was xxxx before "2014/02/01"

That JQL gives me the correct answer.

Hmmm... no taker?

Still no taker?

hmm, I guess you query will return all issues where xxx was assignee in that period. So your issues closed in 2013 had still an assignee xxx in 2014, correct? So that is no bug.

To your second question (issues assigned to xxxx on 2013/12/01 and are still assigned to xxxx today (no assignee change between those dates))

assignee changed to xxx on "2013/12/01" and not assignee changed after "2013/12/02"

That should give what you need,or?
