after filtering an association with a criteria it changes so it's not a normal collection and you can't re-filter it.

even after hydrating it you can't filter it.

The filtering only works once and only if the database hasn't been queried!

This is a major bug because i would like to filter big collections more than once per request.

Can you add a code example? I don't understand what you mean.

sure: here's just an example (written right now to demonstrate, not taken from real project, so no criticize pls):

Let's say we have two functions:

1. function getExpensiveBooks($limit)

{ $books = $this->getBooks(); //proxy, haven't queried yet. $criteria = Criteria::create()->where(Criteria::expr()->gt('price', '10'))->setMaxResults($limit); return $books->matching($criteria); }

2. function getCheapBooks($limit)

{ $books = $this->getBooks(); //proxy, haven't queried yet. $criteria = Criteria::create()->where(Criteria::expr()->lt('price', '4'))->setMaxResults($limit); return $books->matching($criteria); }

now, let's say that in the controller i've called:
$expensiveBooks = $author->getExpensiveBooks(3); //will work fine, and the query will be according the criteria.
//but going on and doing this:
$cheapBooks = $author->getCheapBooks(3); //will not work: matching is undefined function.

It appears that doing matching only works on the first time on a certain association.

this was due to inconsistent association type in both owner and target (target had one-to-one while owner had one-to-many)
