Lightroom 4.4: Export as catalog exports all displayed photos, not just the selected ones

From LR help: "You can create a catalog from existing photos in Lightroom by selecting the photos and exporting them as a new catalog". Also, the first step to do that is, quote: "Select the photos you want to add to the new catalog".

This does not seem to work. It does not matter which photos are actually selected - LR will export all photos that are currently displayed in the grid resp. the film strip, e.g. all photos contained in the currently selected folder.

From the help description I would expect that LR only exports the actually selected photos.

LR 4.4 64 Bit, Win 7.

Edit: Sorry, my fault. I did not see the "export selected photos only" option in the export-as-catalog dialog. Problem can be closed as "not a problem"! Perhaps a little remark about that option should be added to the LR help?
