Domino Startup Program Docs by Weekday

We ran into this by coincident. Usually this doesn't happen when you have a new program doc.
But we copied existing program docs and modified them.

If you change your program document from "Enabled" to "At server startup only" the weekdays to run the program are hidden in the UI.
You would assume that the program is started when the server starts at any day -- But the weekdays are still effective for this program document!

In our case the Saturday wasn't selected because Saturday is our maintenance day and we copied the program doc from other program docs before modifying the trigger.
We had scheduled server maintenance on Saturdays. So this program doc wasn't executed when the server was booted...

In most cases when you create a program doc from scratch this will never cause any issues because by default all weekdays are selected.
The UI and the code are not following the same logic. And at least this isn't an intended behavior and I don't see that I would have a use case for that.

If you are a copy&paste fan like me, you should check your startup program docs!
The fieldname is Field Name: WeekDays and the textlist should contain the numbers "1" to "7".
