i'm not sure, but i think if you logged in that several of your
issues would go away.  i believe, for instance, that i get the
"busybox" project default every time, simply because it remembers
what i want to see.  likewise, if you don't want to see closed
bugs, you can change your default filter to hide "resolved (and

well, i'm not sure where you're looking, but cliek the "show:" link to
edit the display count, and then "Apply Filter" to make it stick.

i just noticed that you can save filters by name, too, so you can
have different views if you want.  haven't tried that.

the other useful display (esp. if you don't like color, or are trying
to parse the results like my busybug script does) is to use the "Print
Reports" link -- the output's a little cleaner.
