Both of your observations are correct, and coincide with my
experience. When the message is posted, twhirl updates the timeline
with the response from the Twitter API. All the messages returned,
though, have an id of -1, so only the first is shown, all the next
ones are identified as duplicated ones, judging from their ids. When
twhirl does a full update by requesting the list of last messages in
the timeline, these arrive with correct unique ids, so the timeline is
updated. You'll notice, though, that the first posted message is
duplicated twice- once with the -1 id, and a second time with the
correct generated id.

This is definitely undesirable behavior, so it won't stay like this for long.
