So here is a response I posted when I finally found the solution. This is how it was on 10.4, but you may get the same esired behavior.

I couldn't believe how "undocumented" and hard this was to figure out.

The desired view will "take" if

- you are currently on an Administrator account, and
- you change the view (via the view selectors) while the Home account/folder is selected.
