So it should be showing all events regardless of category they're posted in?

In which case I've found a bug, I think.

On http://new.classictravelling.com/ there's an event which is in May
which is configured just like the rest, but not showing up.

Creating a new event with NO categories:
 - was automatically given an 'event' category
 - shows up in the list

Creating a new event with event categories:
 - shows up in the list

So I guess it's something to do with changing the title of the event
category. What do I need to change in the database / admin to ensure
all events are picked up? The event which ISN'T showing does have the
new event category selected, and deselecting, saving, reselecting,
saving makes no difference.

Any tips?
