Bug#578876: hamster-applet: Filtered reports no longer available

Package: hamster-applet
Severity: normal

Hamster 2.28 had a few buttons in the "Save report" dialog allowing to
only save a report of the time spent on some categories, or during a
given time period.  According to upstream's blog, Hamster 2.30 no longer
has these buttons, and the saved report matches the currently displayed
tasks (see the section called "what you see is what you print" at

  I can confirm that the buttons have disappeared, and that the saved
report matches the currently displayed time period.  However, all the
time spent during that period is reported, and the currently selected
filters (on categories, activities, and presumably tags, although I
don't use tags yet) have no influence on the generated report.

  Since I use that feature to attach time reports to invoices I send to
clients (and each client only gets a report for the time spent on that
particular client's tasks), I'd love for that regression to be fixed :-)
