StandardSetController.getListViewOptions only returning All



I am currently trying to retrieve a set of list view options for a Lead object from a StandardSetController. When I look at the SelectOptions that are returned (from getLeadExistingViews) I only recieve the All option in my list. The end result I would like is the list view options for the standard Lead page (All Open Leads etc.) Your help would be much appreciated. Markup and code below.





<apex:page standardController="Email_Preference_Member__c" recordSetVar="members" extensions="EmailPreferenceAddMembersExtensions">
  <apex:sectionHeader title="{!$ObjectType.Email_Preference__c.Label}" subtitle="Add Members" />
  <apex:form >
  <apex:outputPanel style="margin-bottom: 1em;" layout="block">&laquo;&nbsp;<apex:outputLink value="http://example.org" style="color: #015BA7; text-decoration: none;">Back to Email Preference: My Email Preference</apex:outputLink></apex:outputPanel>
  <apex:pageBlock >
      <apex:pageBlockSection title="Step 1: Choose Member Type to Search">
          <apex:selectRadio >
              <apex:selectOption itemLabel="Leads" itemValue="Leads" ></apex:selectOption>
              <apex:selectOption itemLabel="Contacts" itemValue="Contacts" ></apex:selectOption>
      <apex:pageBlockSection title="Step 2: Specify Filter Criteria">
          <apex:pageBlockSectionItem >
          <apex:outputLabel value="Use Existing View" />
              <apex:selectList value="{!leadFilterId}" size="1">
              <apex:selectOptions value="{!LeadExistingViews}"></apex:selectOptions>
      <apex:facet name="footer">
          <apex:commandButton value="Go!" style="margin: 1em; width: 3em;" />


public with sharing class EmailPreferenceAddMembersExtensions {

    public ApexPages.StandardSetController leadsController {get; set;}
    public String leadFilterId {get; set;}

    public EmailPreferenceAddMembersExtensions(ApexPages.StandardSetController controller) {
        leadsController = new ApexPages.StandardSetController(Database.getQueryLocator([select Id, Name from Lead]));
        leadFilterId = leadsController.getFilterId();
    public SelectOption[] getLeadExistingViews() {
        return leadsController.getListViewOptions();

Just resolved this issue. If you have id parameter in your URL, getListViewOptions will not work.

I know this is old, but has anyone found a resolution to this? In a custom sidebar VFpage I'm trying to include a link to a particular view. I store the view name in a custom setting and lookup the ID dynamically when the VF page runs. I'd rather not have to save the exact ID for the view. It works great unless I'm on a detail page -- then I only get the "All" view returned, which isn't the view I want to link to. :( 

Am having the same issue.  Did you find a solution?

It's a bizaare limitation in salesforce. You'll only see the "All" view if there's an id in the address bar. I changed my program to store the list view I need access to in a browser cookie when it *is* retrieved so the VF page can remember the list view for those times when it's not visible.
