Users who are defaulted to a specific currency set can choose non-base currencies when configuring smart queries. However, when these queries are executed, they take much longer to run than for users with no currency set associated with their username, which means they only create queries using the base currency. This can be demonstrated using the Donor List smart query.
We're currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future patch or service pack.
