I think the problem is that the (:template first {(ftime %Y%m
{{=$FullName}$:EventsDate})}:) changes value for each date. So even if
the output (Year Month) stay the same, the actual value changes, and
it's a new first instance.

Maybe the value of EventsGroup is actually the same as EventsDate, and
not only the ftime output of it.

Did you try this:

> (:EventsDate:2009-05-12:)
> (:EventsGroup:200905:)

(:template first {{=$FullName}$:EventsGroup})}:)
!! {(ftime "%m / %Y" {{=$FullName}$:EventsGroup})}
(:template each:)
* [[{=$FullName}|{(ftime %d.%m.%Y {{=$FullName}$:EventsDate})}

Not sure if it should make a difference to use EventsGroup in the header
insted of EventsDate, but it's worth a try. Making an eventlist is one
of the more difficult uses of PageList, usually it takes a lot of trial
and error. Maybe the documentation should be better.
