relationship predicate

What is missing? I think I do everything according to the manual.
Say I have entity A en B with a relationship REL (to many) from A to B but without an inverse one. B has a bool value of selected.
The user can select any B for each A and when this happens I observe the
and do some stuff I want to do. For this I need all the A's that has at least one selected B.

My solution to this is:
- (NSArray *) filterDatabase:(NSPredicate *) myPredicate forEntity:(NSString *)myEntity
	NSFetchRequest *request = [[[NSFetchRequest alloc] init] autorelease];
	NSEntityDescription *entity = [NSEntityDescription entityForName:myEntity
	[request setEntity:entity];
	[request setPredicate:myPredicate];
	NSError *error = nil;
	NSArray *array = [context executeFetchRequest:request error:&error];
	if (error)
	return array;


	NSPredicate *selRec = [NSPredicate predicateWithFormat:@"ANY REL.selected == 1"];
	NSArray *result = [self filterDatabase:selRec
	NSLog(@"r %i",[result count]);
	NSPredicate *selRec3 = [NSPredicate predicateWithFormat:@"selected == 1"];
	NSArray *result3 = [self filterDatabase:selRec3
	NSLog(@"r3 %i",[result3 count]);
Every time something is selected, result3 is updated (as I can see with the NSLog), but the first 'result' doesn't give the right answer.

So, besides it being spaghetticode, what's wrong with it?

The code above was right it seems and gave the correct answers. What was displayed was incorrect. When I load the database all instances of B are displayed at first until the selection of instance A is changed.
arraycontroller 1 is bound to A, and arraycontroller 2 is bound to the selection of A for the relationship from A to B.
