get_dashboard_from_context isn't working for me. It never shows the main index page, only the app index.
For some reason request.META.get('REQUEST_URI') is None when I am using the dev server, ubuntu 9.10, FF. I attached a diff of the fix that worked for me. It just uses the django provided get_full_path instead of the META lookup.
Thanks! This tool really helps the admin be what my clients are looking for.
