startBefore logic not working correctly in Gmail add-in

varrus says:
I have a smart list based on the following criteria:

((location:work OR isLocated:false) AND NOT dueAfter:"2 weeks from today" AND (startBefore:now OR start:never) OR list:Inbox)

In RTM, I see 13 tasks available, including one that is overdue. In the Gmail add-in when filtered on this same smart list, I only see the overdue task.

At first what I thought was happening was that the Gmail add-in is interpreting "startBefore:Now" incorrectly as "StartBefore:today", but that doesn't account for all of the missing tasks. Some don't have start dates. Some have start dates of today, and some that started 2 days ago. All of these are showing correctly in the regular Remember the Milk interface on the web and on my iPhone, but not in Gmail.

I am having a similar problem, some of my smart list formulas are not translating over to ios from the web. ie: the post I put in 'tips and tricks' called 'A review facility for projects/tasks without start or due dates' this formula only works on the web, it does not work on the RTM ios app, and this is happening with some of my other smart lists too.
