Indeed, it does appear to be the same issue.  I assuming no progress on fixing 
I guess that leaves me with two workarounds (suitable for my purposes anyway):
Use the "alltodo" search type and either
A) write a customized skip function to exclude any entries without a 
'LastWorked' property entry
B) write a customized sort so that empty entries sort to the bottom, not the 
top (possibly in both directions IE
ABCDEEEEE for tsia-up, DCBAEEEEE for tsia-down
Either of these will get me what I want.  I'm a reasonably competent 
programmer, a minimal elisper, and have almost no familiarity with the org 
code.  Any suggestions on which of these would be easier or more 
I did take a look through the code to see if I could sort this out myself, but 
couldn't really make heads or tails of it.
