Using containers in query conditions is not yet supported except in a
few limited cases. Currently the only straightforward way to achieve this
is to "drop down" to SQL with a native view. (The not straightforward way
would be to try to map an object relationship to the container's table
and use that in the query condition).

You can find previous discussion of this topic by searching for
query+container in archives:
