Walden,
I don't have the psychiatric credentials to comment on a couple of your
questions.
Some phrase about stones and glass houses also comes to mind.

So,
what you saw is how it's meant to work.
Logicals containing select/omit criteria only point to (include) records
that meet the
criteria. Any query built over the logical (SQL, OPNQRYF, ..) will only
return records
within the logical's criteria.
