Yeah, I reported this via feedback (and this thread (http://forums.omnigroup.com/showthread.php?t=6310)) a while back. The only workaround I know is to apply your perspective twice.

Heh. Yeah, another way it would be easy to neglect action groups whose actions are completed would be if OmniFocus turned the action following the group into the next action. Which it does. A rigid...

Yes, I understand. You need to re-save your perspective after you turn on the due date column. It sounds like your perspective is saved with it turned off. But even then, you may sometimes need to do...

You may also be running into a long-standing bug: perspectives that are set to apply their settings to both the context and planning modes don't always do that, at least not at first.
