I have good news. The two patches you proposed (http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3397
, 2.0 patch, and http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=3282
) worked well. Now I do not have the eliminated papers appearing listed in the browse by author or browse by title sections.
Yesterday I made a mistake and in fact did not introduce the patch 3397. I realized it today, and after patching I noticed that the browse by title was corrected. The second patch worked by eliminating the browse by authors. The only lines I added from this patch were
--> AND a.status = ' . SUBMISSION_STATUS_PUBLISHED . '
There were other differences in the patch but I guess they have to do with another things (0 instead of NULL's, etc). I do not know php enough so as to introduce them...
Thanks a lot for your support !
