Bill -- thanks for your quick response. I just tried to put together a
debug log for the -gte case to provide more info, and realized that it WAS

Sorry for the false alarm.
Out of curiosity, is there a JIRA option to track the FILTER version of
this? PIG-1205 seems to be an umbrella ticket for all the changes.
