I guess you didn't let her actually use that screen either then :)

IMHO, it is completely useless to find a particular recordings that
occurred in the past few days.

The idea is to find a recordings not by its title but about where it
was last recorded (e.g. you know it was yesterday).

The filtered list, is sorted by title it takes forever to find
something in there and the list can be huge (there are over 1000
titles in my case).

So really, it's no replacement.

It seems to be happening only on the mac... look like the fonts are
different somehow... are you including the font or are you relying on
a system font to exist?

I saw another issue in the playback menu -> audio

The "enable upmixer" entry is shown as "Auto Detect"...

Finally, would be nice for the theme to support the new notifications
introduced in 0.27

(looking at the default notification-ui.xml would give a tad more
detail about it)
