dgrid refresh array / store problems

I have a rather large application accessing several arcgis server services (10.1).  The application's intent is to query these large data warehouses and allow the users visualize their content.  Development went fine and I published a nice app that has a large audience and continues to develop with time.  I use dgrid (3.2/1.7) to display query results in tabular format to accompany the maps.  I thought it worked well until one of my users pointed out an apparent issue:

"Though the table (dgrid) appears to return the correct number of records, the data within it is incorrect..."

After investigating the issue, the user was correct.  I re-created the issue in a sample posted below.  It appears that the query executes correctly, the number of records counted in the array is correct, the number of rows displayed in the dgrid is correct, but the data is not.

If you use the sample provided (no map) you see that upon executing the button (submit filter) without anything in the text box, that the query responds and returns the result to the dgrid as expected.  Now, enter "or" (without quotes) into the textbox and submit again.  You'll see that the query executes, reports the correct number of records (7) and dgrid displays the correct number of rows (7).  However,...  within the list of state names, none of them contain the string "or".  Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island...  The results are the first 7 rows of the previous query, the array was not updated in the grid.

Now.. click on the table header "State Name"... "Poof!"  They appear!!!

Can someone look at my code and tell me if I'm overlooking something or misunderstanding the appropriate use of dgrid?
