Wontfix? I'm baffled. Perhaps you misunderstood me?

The future payments list normally contains multiple occurrances of the same
schedule, listed as they fall on different dates into the following month. As
soon as one of those occurrances becomes overdue, *all* of those future
occurrances disappear from that list. This is logical behaviour?

At a glace the overview will show the user upcoming payments - this is a useful
feature - except in the case where you're overdue. Then there's no mention of
upcoming additional payments. You're open for a surprise when the next
ocurrance comes overdue without anything indicating that it's upcoming. (The
scheduled transactions view is even less indicative at a glance than the home
page.) This is sensible?

And you're trying to tell me that the user should not expect to be able to
trust the home page to actually give them useful, not misleading, information?

Nonsense. Why should the user expect scheduled (recurring) payments coming up
in the future to ever be *missing* from the future payments list displayed to
them? That information displayed is currently, so you can only logically
conclude that this *is* a bug. You may not put a high priority on it, I
completely understand that. You could have even changed this to a wishlist and
I wouldn't have complained. But closing this as wontfix, presumably because
you're too close to the code to realise the illogical way it presents
information to the user, is just dumb.
