active board doesn't show epic labels for sub-tasks when using quick filters

I have a  story in Epic E that is assigned to user A, with a sub-task of the story assigned to user B.  

I have a quick filter to only show issues assigned to user B.

My board is configured to show Epic swimlanes.

When I look at the unfiltered board, the story and its sub-task show up in the Epic E swimlane.

When I click on my user B quick filter, the sub-task assigned to user B is now in the "Issues without Epics" swimlane.  

I believe the reason is because there's not any stories assigned to user B that are also in Epic E.

But since sub-task are supposed to inherit their epics from their stories, I would think that the sub-task should still show in Epic E even when the user filter is turned on.  

This seems like a bug.

Thank you.

I also find this very annoying. Makes sub-tasks less useful.

Agreed. Would be very nice if the epic label actually appeared next to a subtask since they're inheriting it anyway. 

Still no solution about that!?
