What you've done wrong is either thought too hard or not enough =).
This is a feature not a bug. For many things it is valid and preferred
to record only on weekdays and for other things, seven days a week
is the only right thing to do. Setting the "Date or day of the week:"
to Sat or Sun is a convenient way to make this distinction. This is
quite intuitive as others like yourself had no problem figuring out
how it works then chose to ask if it was a bug.
I suppose there could be a note on the manual page to point out this
intended behavior. This may look junky and should fit on a single line.
Would something like this be useful?
