prevent an agile rapid view board from showing up in project dropdown

The new UI for JIRA projects with integrated Agile (GreenHopper) functionality looks and works great but there is one issue that bothers me on a daily basis:

I have a private board called "my issues" (rapidView=1) that spans all projects. Then I have a project board created for each project available to everyone on that project (rapidView=2, rapidView=3, etc)

When I load a URL https://companyname.atlassian.net/browse/PROJECTCODE I am automatically redirected to my private rapidView, instead of the project board.

https://companyname.atlassian.net/secure/RapidBoard.jspa?projectKey=PROJECTCODE&rapidView=1

In the sidebar under the dropdown titled "BOARDS IN THIS PROJECT", both my private issues board and the project board are listed, but the private issues board is always first.  I even changed my private issues board to "zMy Issues" to see if an alphabetical name change would have any impact and it did not.  I suspect the order is based on the index of the private rapidView being a lower number (1) than the newer project board (2, 3, etc).

How can I either:

a) remove this private board from showing up under all projects.

b) change the order so that the private board is not loaded as the default, without continually recreating my private board so it has a higher rapidView index, so future projects are not affected in the same way?

The query being used for the private board is:

assignee = currentUser() AND status not in (Closed) AND project not in ("Test Project") ORDER BY cf[10700] DESC, priority

I've confirmed that the problem was due to the "project not in" part of the query.  Removing that section removed the rapidView from all projects.
