Where clause not working in 10.1 with Copy Features / Copy Rows

We are using scripts and workflows that use the Create Table View / Create Feature Layer with a where clause specified. These functions seem to work (i.e. the correct subsets are shown in ArcMap), but when we try to use Copy Rows / Copy Features, it appears that the where clause is not being observed (i.e. all the records in the original data are copied).

The issue showed up when we tried the scripts on our 10.1 machines (Python 2.7), but it's working fine on our 10.0 machines (Python 2.6). Does anyone know (or can guess) what is going on here? I've looked, but I haven't seen any documented changes between 10.0 and 10.1 as far as how views behave or how the copy functions work.
