Answer:
The Project for which the user story is assigned contains no features, therefore the initial (default) search which is looking at the user story project list correctly returns no features.

If the user selects a specific project in the 'CHOOSE A PARENT' selection dialogue box, then features will be returned.  Alternatively if the user closes the dialogue and re-selects the 'choose one' link the list will populate with features in the project hierarchy.
