Answer = The time range preview picker is not expected to work on Hunk.
Cause = This is because Hunk/Hadoop cannot guarantee time ordered results (because of the way hadoop returns it's results).

Please note though that if you select a range on the time range picker and double click it, Hunk will launch a new query using that time range.
