Hi Thomas,

It turns out that in 1.5.4, RecentChanges will only display each page  
at most 1 time on the list, regardless of when the changes were  
made.  I've added my comments & a patch to:


I hope this patch can be picked up for the next release; it's a  
pretty glaring problem (IMO).  Just makes me wonder what other  
changes i've missed out on.
