'Recently added' links on author page use incorrect filter

Under 'Recently added' on an author page, there's a list of members who've recently added books by that author. This in the format '{username} ({number of books added})', where '{number of books added}' links to books by that author in the member's catalogue.

The bug is that:
The list includes both books for which the author is a main author, and books for which they're listed as a secondary author under 'Also by...'.

However, the link to the member's catalogue only outputs books for which the author is a main author. This means that if a member has added only books for which that author is a secondary author, following the link to their catalogue gives 'No books found'.

Example: https://www.librarything.com/author/aldingtonrichard, member sarah_tackett.
