Search fields not updating on token set

Engager

I am attempting to set a token via a drilldown in a simple xml dashboard as a way to filter a table.

    <input type="dropdown" token="batchId" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>BatchId</label>
      <fieldForLabel>BatchId</fieldForLabel>
      <fieldForValue>BatchId</fieldForValue>
      <search base="base">
        <query>| dedup BatchId | sort BatchId</query>
      </search>
      <choice value="*">All</choice>
      <default>*</default>
      <initialValue>*</initialValue>
    </input>

...

 <drilldown>
          <condition field="BatchId">
            <set token="batchId">$click.value2$</set>
          </condition>
 </drilldown>

Clicking the field does filter the table when the token is set but the dropdown box does not reflect the token change to indicate to the user that a filter is active.

I found this question pasted below but it also does not update the field until refresh, and then as a side effect of setting the token as the default the clear X no longer works to change the filter back to *.
