I cant get the Atlas to work with virtual layers.

My procedure may be at fault...

1. Vector polygon layer (SHAPE) with "Provider feature filter" on an attribute to get only 'city'
2. Virtual Layer to get only "large" polygons.
select * from layername where st_area(geometry) > 10000000;
3. Use virtual layer as source for Atlas.

Variables like @atlas_pagename works fine as do the drop-down list to select pages, but the map will not update.
If I save the virtual layer as a new shape file and use that in the Atlas, it also works fine!

I've even tried creating a very simple shape file and use select * from layername and it will not work.
