fwiw, this is the bug Mimi is referring to (the one that caused us to
move the view selector menus to tools):
Special-cased dashboard logic needs to handle view, not just filter state
One of the problems when viewing the dashboard collection in the
calendar view -- recurring events don't show up.
I believe Mimi is correct that a triage table view of a user collection
filtered by calendar events doesn't have known bugs, but let us know
Andre if that is incorrect and you see bugs (or know of the bug #s in
bugzilla of bugs we've forgotten).
Seems like a reasonable solution Mimi.
