We've gone back and forth on this, most recently we've settled on the 
Dashboard counting as a collection.  That means if you have an item in a 
"include in dashboard" collection, removing that item from the last 
non-dashboard collection leaves the item in the dashboard.

I can't remember why we did it that way now, that may not be the ideal 
behavior, but if it's a bug, it's at least intentional :)
