If a vector layer has features selected before opening it's attribute table, only those features previously selected are visible when the attribute table is opened.

I also noticed the issue cfarmer reported and thought it was an error. Now that I learned it's intentional I find it at least counter intuitive.
Why not, instead, only navigate to the selected row, still leaving the rest of the table visible? As it is now, users will ask where has their data gone.

Now the behaviour is configurable. The attribute table either shows all featues (default), all selected features or all features in the current canvas.

I still have problems with this: once the table with selected elements is shown, how can a user select all the rows? Apparently pressing the first button has no effect
The patch is still pending due to feature freeze. Once it's applied your your problem would be solved, wouldn't it?

I think that the current behaviour is not acceptable for most users. Showing only selected rows is quite misleading (without telling user what's going on). It introduces new problems and it doesn't solve the real problem.
I vote for applying the patch before 1.0.

Well, the solution for the real problem would be 'better table' I guess.
Looking closer at the patch, it seems quite unproblematic bug wise. Still we need to have the ok from the documentation team since it involves GUI changes.
And translations are also not aware of the additional string.
