Ok this is an old one, but I can confirm this.
Will we fix this or do we use other mechanisms with model-view after 0.10 release anyway?

Comment 2 caulier.gilles 2008-12-04 21:14:45 UTC
yes, absolutly...

Well, this bug is INVALID for practical reasons - album categories are no more.
Comment 4 Andi Clemens 2008-12-06 17:59:37 UTC
Sure they are... it's called collection
Comment 5 caulier.gilles 2011-12-23 11:33:45 UTC

I think Mik is right. Categories are not Collection.

Categories is old filtering rules, not used anymore (setup panel need to be removed in the future)

I agree on your and Mik's statement that categories are not collections. 
But I do not agree on your subsequent conclusion. In my opinion the filtering on categories was a very useful option to select photos within a big collection. This feature is independent from all other posibilities to select photos (e.g. based on key words).
Therefore I would really appreciate if this function will return soon (see also 227530).
