Multicurrency: Smart Query gift amount in foreign currency is output with organisation currency symbol

When creating a revenue smart query that filters on a transaction that was made using a foreign currency the transaction amount is displayed with the organisation currency symbol. 
We are currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future service pack.

Steps to duplicate

Replicated on sample data.

3. Go to Analysis functional area and click on 'Add an ad-hoc query', choose revenue source view
4. Add a query:


Filter:

Revenue ID is equal to [ID of payment made above]
 
Output fields:

RevenueID
Amount
Date
Application Details\Amount(transaction currency)
Application Details\Amount(organization currency)


5. From query design window click 'Create smart query':


Set RevenueID as a filter (Equal to) and all fields as visible

Primary key field: [blank]
Record type: Revenue
Smart query name: [give it a name]
Description: [blank]


6. Open the smart query just created and filter on the revenueID of the foreign currency payment made above
7. Click preview results and notice the transaction amount is displayed as £1000 instead of $1000, also if you export to Excel it's also displayed in pounds.
