Limiting Current Iteration results to one timeline

In my project we have multiple timelines. Each for different deliverables each managed by different project mngrs. When I am creating queries (such as impediments) and selecting "Current Iteration" checkbox, I want the results to be limited to only one timeline. Currently it returns current iteration for all the timelines.

Alternatively I can select current iteration at each iteration. But I can not benefit from "Current Iteration" checkbox.
I have similar problem with reports such as Burndown.

What do you suggest?

Currently is is not possible to add a timeline-condition. However what you can try is:
- add one condition for Planned For where you select 'Current Iteration' (and as condition 'is')
- add another condition for Planned For where you select the top-level iteration of the desired timeline and set the condition 'is part of'.

I'm working with 4.0.1 and see that  the problem still exists. Our burndown chart is selecting 2 iterations from 2 different timelines when selecting current iteration. 

And it is impossible to select a timeline in the query. 
When will this be solved?

I'm interested in knowing the answer to this question too.

When we have more than one active timeline (say one for development, another for maintenance), is it really necessary to explicity specify the iteration and team for each report we want to display on a dashboard, and to update each set of report parameters by moving the iteration along as the release progresses?

For some reason we can't figure out how to differentiate between one timeline's results and the other's. The results for all active timelines seem to be combined when we select "Current Iteration" for what to display, even when we choose only one timeline.
