JQL query on a list field

I am having a strange issue that I am wondering if is it just a limitation, bug, or my understanding problem. I have a JQL which includes

affectedVersion != v1a0

yet, I still get issues with v1a0 in the affected list.

After some playing around, I see the following:

1. If affectedVersion is ONLY v1a0, the filter works

2. If affectedVersion has v1a0 in the list, but not at the beginning or end, the filter works

3. if affectedVersion has v1a0 as the first or last version in the list, the issue does NOT get filtered out.

I've tried using "not in v1a0" in place of "!= v1a0", but it made no difference. Is there a better way to search a list picker field that gets around this?
