List of upcoming events from calendar shows only days names instead of dates

Bug Description

Binary package hint: indicator-datetime

I use Ubuntu 11.04.
I have some events in Evolution calendar. Those events are shown in the indicator. Unfortunately next to the event name it's only name of the day that event will happen. So if I have 3 events on Mondays, I don't know if it's one Monday, and which Monday. Displaying full date would be much more useful in this case.

See screenshot with the problem.

if there is only the name displayed it's likely because they are day events and on the following instance of that day

Same issue with 12.04:
$ apt-cache policy indicator-datetime
  Installed: 0.3.94-0ubuntu2
  Candidate: 0.3.94-0ubuntu2
  Version table:
 *** 0.3.94-0ubuntu2 0
        500 precise/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Shows event days even into the next month even if those event dates are not shown on the dropdown calendar. Example:

Anniversary Friday (this is September)
Birthday Tuesday (this is in October)
Holiday Monday (this is in October)

I don't plan to go to work tomorrow (Monday) because my Event calendar tells me it is a holiday...

This is not the case in newer versions of indicator-datetime. Any date that lies outside of today or the next 6 days is given a date.
