I'm having problems with pymongo

I have a large collection (10's of millions of docs) that i am trying to query. When i run find with my query from the mongo shell, all is well. I get the expected count(millions) However, when i do it from pymongo, its totally wrong. I get back a significantly smaller count (thousands). I can't seem to find whats wrong or off here. Has anyone seen this problem? suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Python Shell
>>> csr = st.find({"created_at_datetime"­: {"$lte": datetime.datetime(2011, 8, 31, 0, 0),"$gte": datetime.datetime(2011, 8, 1, 0, 0)}})
>>> csr.count()

Mongo Shell

> db.collection.find({'created_at_datetime­': {$lte: new Date(2011, 8, 31), $gte: new Date(2011, 8,1)}}).count()

python 2.7+
pymongo 2.0.1
MongoDB shell version: 2.0.0

I think that javascript dates use 0-based months, but python uses 1-based, so your queries are actually over different periods.
