jira problem: grouping search terms not working.

I wanted to search in jira for (X OR Y) AND NOT Z
but it isn't working. I clicked the context help icon next to the Query: field and it says that grouping with parentheses is supported.

JIRA supports using parentheses to group clauses to form sub queries. This can be very useful if you want to control the boolean logic for a query.

To search for either "atlassian" or "jira" and "bugs" use the query:

(atlassian OR jira) AND bugs
---

Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks,

I don't think so, this looks like a JIRA (or rather Lucene) issue to me. Using
"bugs AND (atlassian OR jira)" works for me, it seems something doesn't like a
query to start with a parentheses.

BTW: +(atlassian jira) +bugs does the same and is much easier to type ;)
