useother works incorrect

Hi all.
When I type "useother=f" in timechart some values are lost:
fro example, I've got 5-types events:
A - 10 events, B - 9 events, C - 9 events, D - 2 events, C - 3 events.

I type : "timechart bla bla"
I expect: "A - 10 events, B - 9 events, C - 9 events, OTHER - 3 events"
I see : "A - 10 events, B - 9 events, C - 9 events, OTHER - 3 events"

OK

I type : "timechart useother=f bla bla"
I expect : "A - 10 events, B - 9 events, C - 9 events, D - 2 events, C - 3 events"
I see: "A - 10 events, B - 9 events, C - 9 events"

They are just covered!!! Has anyone faced this problem?

That's the intended behaviour. You're looking for limit=0 to avoid more than ten series of data to get collapsed into the other column. useother=f just hides that column, the default limit=10 is still in effect.
