Had a phone interview today and the guy asked what I was making then followed up with what I was looking for. This was a nice 1-2 combo as I'm usually of the mindset he who mentions salary first loses because you set the bar from that point. I gave him a range of what I was making and kept it on the high end of that range when he asked what I wanted to make?

Or. Much ado about nothing?

Not an issue at all. Any interviewer will expect you to ask for a decent bump.

 

In my experience once you get to a certain level you ask for what you are worth and happy with

I try and bring it up early in the process.  I've made the mistake of not bringing it up only to realize we've wasted each others time over several interviews.

If they have to ask what I'm making, they probably can't afford me.

 

That probably applies to high end call girls too, I guess.

The hr person is just making sure you fit within the salary grade the position is rated at for that company. As long as you were honest, saves everyone time.
