Let me reassign this to GTK client project, as I think this is a client-side issue.

The error comes because the wrong "tree" view is used a when you open the action from the dashboard in GTK client.
If you do the same in web client, you won't get the error, because web client does not have this bug (BTW web client will open the graph view first, but you can also switch to list view manually).

Basically the GTK client should respect the view_ids that are specified in the action that is displayed in the dashboard. Currently it only respects the main view_id, but not the view_ids for other view_modes that are specified on the action. Therefore it requests "any tree view" when you click on the magnifying glass.. and sometimes this will be a bad view, depending on the random order in postgres.
This is the same behavior as for regular actions, such as actions invoked from menu items.

Note: this bug cannot be reproduced 100% of the time because it depends on the random natural order of views in the postgres database. To force it to occur you can manually change the sequence number of an incorrect view, for example set sequence 10 on the view named "qty.per.product.tree", and you will reproduce it for sure.

@Mihai: based on the above investigations, it appears that a simple workaround for your case is to login as Administrator, go to Administration>Customization>User Interface>Views, search for the view named "purchase.order.monthly.categ.tree", and decrease the sequence number, for example change it from 16 to 10.
Save the changes and it should be fixed immediately.
This is only a workaround, the bug will of course be fixed in trunk soon.

Hope this helps...

It seems to me that the bug is still present (or has been re-introduced ?) in an up-to-date client/6.1.

I have an OpenERP 6.1 server with a client/6.1 with revno 2085, and it doesn't take into account the view_id that I provide in ir.actions.act_window.view. The Web client is not affected by this issue.
