I'm having trouble in Salesforce1 with a lookup field on a Chatter Publisher Action not respecting the lookup field's required filter criteria.

When users are in the Salesforce1 app (iOS or HTML5) and try to select a value for the lookup field, they see ALL records listed rather than just the records that meet the lookup filter's criteria.

The only viable workaround I can think of is writing a completely custom visualforce page and controller where I explicitly build the HTML select field and options, but that is extreme overkill and I lose out on the whole declarative point-n-click development...

This issue might be related to this other post, How to stop invalid records showing in a filtered lookup, but the post and answer wasn't clear enough for me to tell for sure.

Thanks for any guidance!
