So I think I found an inconsistency in the agenda and/or in the docs.
Maybe it's just my lack of understanding as usual, but here goes.
Emacs : GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (i386-mingw-nt6.1.7601) of 2013-03-17 on MARVIN
Package: Org-mode version 8.2.7c (8.2.7c-dist <at> c:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/emacs-24.3/lisp/org/)
According to the docuemntation:
>v d or short d (org-agenda-day-view)
>v w or short w (org-agenda-week-view)
>v t (org-agenda-fortnight-view)
>v m (org-agenda-month-view)
>v y (org-agenda-year-view)
>v SPC (org-agenda-reset-view)
> Switch to day/week/month/year view. When switching to day or
> week view, this setting becomes the default for subsequent agenda
> refreshes. Since month and year views are slow to create, they do not
> become the default. A numeric prefix argument may be used to jump
> directly to a specific day of the year, ISO week, month, or year,
> respectively. For example, 32 d jumps to February 1st, 9 w to ISO
> week number 9.
"d", however, does not work that way. Using a numberic prefix before
"d" jumps to that specific day of the **month**, not of the year.
So when I'm looking at the current agenda (for week 15 Sep - 21 Sep),
"5d" takes me to Sept 5th, "26d" takes me to Sept 26th, 35d takes me
to October 5th (the 35th "day of September").
Note that the "current month" had changed, so now, "5d" takes me to
October 5th, not September 5th any more. To me that's another
inconsistency, but I could see where it's a "feature" and not a "bug".
