workedIssues JQL function from Timesheet plugin returning different results in Issue Navigator and JIRA CLI?

I'm using the Timesheet add-on in JIRA OnDemand and finding that queries with the workedIssues JQL function as documented in item 6. on the add-on's wiki return as expected in the issue navigator but always return 0 issues via the getIssueList action of the CLI (in eirther the filter or search parameter) while queries with other built-in JQL functions return the same in both cases.

For example when I enter the following query in my issue navigator:

key in workedIssues("2014/03/01", "2014/03/06", "jira-users")

it returns 108 issues but when I run the following from the CLI (note the escaping needed)

jira --action getIssueList --search "key in workedIssues(\"2014/03/01\", \"2014/03/06\", \"jira-users\")" --outputFormat 1 --dateFormat "yyyy-MM-dd" --file jira_issues.csv --append

it reports 0 issues in the command line and doesn't write anything to file. I raised this issue initially at the end of another thread and moving it here to hopefully get more focus. Anyone have an idea what's going on?

For what it's worth, workedIssues() function is declared to return JiraDataTypes.ISSUE.
