that behaviour is caused by a bug which is already fixed for version 5.1

don't know about that one myself. Most often i go into the view manager
and create a view
rather than checking the fields in the query form - there is another
problem that the
field selection seems to disappear after seeing several chunks. This is
also what changed in 5.1:
whenever you do a field selection in the queyr form a view is defined
from that which stays 
for the rest of the session
