get_adjacent_post is not working with post_format

When I was creating a custom post navigation function today for a client with WP 4.2.3, specifically for post formats, I noticed that the following does not return adjacent posts, even though they exist. I'm not sure if this has ever worked or is a regression. Has anyone been successful in using get_adjacent_post with post_format?

$prev = get_adjacent_post( true, '', true, 'post_format' );
$next = get_adjacent_post( true, '', false, 'post_format' );

Just tested, and it only works for posts that actually have a format other than Standard (otherwise they're not connected to any term from the post_format taxonomy).

Thank you for testing. Unfortunately, these post have non-standard formats. They are video, audio, & image formats with more than one in each term. None of them are finding adjacent posts for either previous or next. Could you briefly describe how you tested the issue?

Replying to valendesigns:

Could you briefly describe how you tested the issue?

I've created two asides, added your snippet to single.php, and checked the values of $prev and $next.

$next contained Aside 2 when viewing Aside 1, and $prev contained Aside 1 when viewing Aside 2.

I guess I have to look deeper into this clients plugins and see if there's a conflict somewhere. Yay! At any rate we should have coverage here, the tests for get_adjacent_post are not covering all core taxonomies and they probably should be.

I'll open a ticket for the unit tests later. I found the issue in my clients theme, which is an old one I didn't create and has loads of code. It seems to have a filter on get_previous_post_where & get_next_post_where that removes the post_format taxonomy from the query. I was able to bypass and everything it working correctly. I guess I should have dug deeper earlier. Thanks for verifying that it does work.
