[Vtigercrm-developers] Bug with Module layout & Contacts/Accounts

Interesting to note. I had never tried something like this. I always end 
up using accounts for something.
Even in one install where we were really treating with people all the 
time we ended up keeping accounts as "Family".

In any case I wanted to note that maybe you could have modified the All 
filter directly in the database.
