Bug: changes script shows only first revision not second

The changes script shows, for some pages at revision 1.2, that they are NEW (first revision). The WebChanges page shows the correct result, verified by checking some pages.

This is not consistent (e.g. WasIstEinWiki does not show this problem, whereas CpanReadme, WebRssAndEUCJPAndMojibakeCorruption and TOCnotWorkingForChineseHeadings all show this problem.

It is repeatable, and is not a caching problem - one change I made 24 hours ago is not showing up. I haven't seen this happen with changes made by other people but I haven't been looking at those.

Test case

See attached web pages - until more changes are made to the relevant pages, bug should be visible at TWiki.org by using the changes script and WebChanges.

Follow up

This is probably down to use of the 'minor changes, don't notify' option (aka Quiet Save) - however, if I'm getting confused about this after some years using TWiki, it's not ideal. IMO the changes script should show the same as WebChanges, but the 'minor only' changes should not be sent out using WebNotify.

WebRss is based on a search not the changes script, so currently it notifies different topics to WebNotify.
