if one specifies the aLengthMenu and doesn't specify iDisplayLength (and aLengthMenu's first item doesn't match to the default 10 of iDisplayLength) it can be confusing.

Check this example, datatable says it's showing 20 entries but it only shows 10:

Really sorry I didn't reply to this - yes this should be done and it now is. Committed in 36fc3cc. It will be releases as part of DataTables 1.10.

…s used to default to using the built in iDisplayLength option. However, this lead to a bit of confusion as to why the first value from aLengthMenu was not used (issue #61 and numerous forum posts). This commit changes that behaviour - the first value from aLengthMenu is used, if iDisplayLength is not given as well.
