Dashboards & Visualizations

Why FlashTimeline disappears after zooming to selection or double click in advanced XML dashboard in Splunk 6.1?

I have an advanced xml dashboard in Splunk 6.1, when I zoom into the flashtimeline by double clicking or using the zoom to selection link the search is re-run and the flashtimeline disappears. If I use the datetimepicker to explicitly go to the same period of time the flashtimeline works fine.

How can I fix it so the flashtimeline stays present when I zoom in?

This dashboard may seem like a trivial example for advanced xml but it is simplified to demonstrate the issue.
