Drilldown with stringreplace intention?

I would like to specify a drilldown with a stringreplace intention. I'm trying to do something like this, but can't get it to work. What am I missing? The first two arguments comes from two drop down lists, and the outer table renders fine. The problem is when i click on a row in my table, then the search doesn't return any results and the jobs manager shows a job with the literals "$arg1$", "$arg2$" and "$arg3$" in it, instead of replacing them with their values.

                <module name="HiddenSearch" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1" group="Group Name">
                    <param name="search">`my_first_macro($arg1$, $arg2$)`</param>
                    <module name="ResultsHeader">
                        <param name="entityName">scanned</param>
                        <param name="entityLabel">Events</param>
                        <module name="SimpleResultsTable">
                            <param name="count">100</param>

The arguments from the listers were consumed in the first search, so they need to be converted again, which means that I need two more ConvertToIntention: (Also, the " <param name="settingToConvert">arg3_setting</param>" in the arg3 converter was not needed but caused that conversion to fail.) The working xml looks like:
