search "how far back" does not work correctly

This problem seems to have existed for the last few months. When I want to do a forum search for the last few weeks or months, I select "more options" and choose a period in the "How far back do you want to search" dropdown - for example "posted within the last 2 months". Then if I select a large number of forum names in the "forums to search" box and click the Search button, the displayed results are always "Time frame searched: All". So it is impossible to do a limited period search because it always comes back with "all".
After some messing around I've found that it will do a limited period search if you only select a few forum names.
It used to work OK, but this problem has been there for the last few months.
I've tried Firefox, Chrome and IE and they all show this problem, so I don't think its browser related.
