OBIEE problem with "All Column Values" in prompt

There are issues in prompts with the "All Column Values":

A user may want to run a report for all column values EXCEPT one or two. He naturally believes (as is appropriate) that the correct way to do this is to choose the "All Column Values" which then fills in the checkbox for all values, and then "deselecting" the one or two values they don't want.

But this doesn't work in OBIEE - it keeps the "All Column Values" selected even after a user deselects one of the values beneath it, and the report then runs for all values.

Very contrary to what the users expect, and this doesn't conform to general standards.
