The behavior in 1.5.1 is to not set the post slug until the post is
published.  After publication, WP won't attempt to auto update the slug
if the title changes.  The only way to change the slug on a published
post is manually.

If a post has no title when it is published, the id is used.  After
publication, the same rule as before applies.  We will not automatically
change a post slug on a published post, even if the slug is the post id.
