Form field dropdown always shows 'No fields available'

I've created a simple form via the form builder in Activiti 1.4.4, that contains two fields - a text field (name) and a display text field (greeting). I'd like to use the name value in part of the text displayed by the greeting field, but when I edit the greeting field and attempt to insert a form field, the "No fields available" message is shown in the dropdown. When I attempt to edit the visibility tab of the greeting field, the form field dropdown populates with information about the name field.

I thought the issue might have something to do with this post, so I created a process using the BPMN editor, and attached my form to a user task. When I open the form after attaching it to the user task, I see the same behavior (no form fields in the general tab of the greeting field, but the name field appears when selecting the form field dropdown on the visibility tab).

Am I missing something about how to reference form fields in other form fields, or is this a defect?

Thanks in advance for any help!
