jira-python search_issues error

For some reason when I go through the code in the main jira-python documentation page to search for issues I always get a traceback with the following message:

AttributeError: 'dict' object has no attribute 'format'

Here is the code that results in the error:

from jira.client import JIRA

options = { 'server': 'https://jira.atlassian.com'}

jira = JIRA(options)

issues = jira.search_issues('assignee=admin')

This happens regardless of the user name referenced as assignee.

Any help would be appreciated.

maybe it was fixed already ? see https://bitbucket.org/bspeakmon/jira-python/issue/106/search_issues-not-working-after-update-to. i do not get error ( using version 0.31 ) :

from jira.client import JIRA
jira = JIRA(options={'server': 'https://jira.atlassian.com'})
issues = jira.search_issues('assignee=admin')
print issues

returns [] , which, it seems, is correct : there are no issues matching that JQL string - https://jira.atlassian.com/issues/?jql=assignee%20%3D%20admin
