"Show up to N scheduled activities" pref does not work as expected

The preference for selecting the number of "scheduled" activities does not work as expected.


I have quite  a few activities queued up for the turn of the year - midnight on 1 Jan 2014.


I was puzzled why the scripts I had scheduled for a few hours after midnight were not showing up in the "activities" report. I had to bump it up to 50 to see the 20 scripts that are queued. It appears to be counting just the scripts that are doing a "recycle" backup, but is counting them wrong.


I include 3 screen shots below, with the setting at 10, 20, and 50. None of the settings shows the number of scheduled activities that I expect (10, 20, or 50) It is generally more, but omits some, like the later "recycle" operations that are in the "middle" of the list.


Is the preference 10/20/50 per day?


The snaps:


With the pref set to 10, I get 29 scheduled activities, but only 9 of the "recycle" ops.




Set at 20, I get 35+ (a few hidden at the bottom, but only 19 recycle ops.




Set at 50, I get a lot more, and can't show them on the screen all at once. These two snaps cover the 69 scheduled activities, and I finally get all my recycle ops.






If this is how it is supposed to work, it needs a better description. ;->
