executeForIds not honoring returnGeometry = false

I am working on a proof on concept app where I need to return a very large number of points.  Possibly 500,000+ points.  I dont need to actually display them (the selected points), just capture some attributes of the points.  So, it would seem that using a querytask and executeForIds would be my best bet.  I does in fact work OK if I send a plain REST request against the layer. 

However, if I use Flex, it doesnt seem to honor returnGeometry = false.  If I look at the request that it sends to AGS, returngeometry is omitted completely, and the query fails (on a very very big selection).  If I add in returngeometry=false, that query will work and return the expected array of ID's.

This a bug or am I missing something? 


var query:Query = new Query();
query.spatialRelationship =;
query.geometry = geom;
query.returnGeometry = false;
queryTask.executeForIds(query, new AsyncResponder(onResult, onFault));
