Dataview not consistent in behavior

Hi all,

I just installed dataview for the first time today and I seem to have come across a bug and I thought I’d see if anyone else is having the same issue here - or if I’m doing something wrong.

What I’m trying to do

I’m trying to create a list of tasks within each of my project files where the list only shows tasks associated with the particular project in question.

My metadata in the individual tasks files is as follows:

project:: [[P - Sample project]]
status:: 03 later action

and the query in each project:

TABLE status
WHERE project =
SORT status desc

Now this works, but in a very buggy way as the results shown change dependent on what files have been selected previously. The video below shows this behavior:

Things I have tried

I’ve tried a bunch of things, using YAML instead of inline fields, removing any emojis from my field contents, changing the query to file.project = ... but nothing seems to change the behavior above.

@SkepticMystic - I watched your fantastic talk on dataview yesterday and was wondering if you’ve also seen this behaviour?

Update: I posted this as a bug on the GitHub project:
