OK. Does it works as expected?

it shows you all the events stored in the calendar, with no time

I suppose those "missing" events from the Month view are recurring
events. The recurring events are not expanded in the List View,
intentionally (a "forever" repeating event would clutter the List View
easily). You see only the first instance of the recurring events in the
List View, with all the detached instances, which are exceptions for
the recurrence. Check the icons of the events, those with the circular
arrow (though it depends on your icon theme what it looks like [1]) are
recurring events.

I'm afraid you cannot use the List View the way you are used to. I'm



OK. I must admit I don't see what use the list view would be to me then as I'd have to know when I set up a recurring event (ie if I set my brother's birthday up in 2008, then the first occurrence would be 2008 - but I would never remember that). So the list isn't a 'reminder' of future events - more a data check list? But even then to verify events in any month I'd have to go back to day 1 (in my case 2003) and go through each year to build a picture of a month - is that right? 
Can I ask what people would use the list view for now? That's not meant as a criticism in anyway, just that I may be missing something that I hadn't thought of using!
