[wp-hackers] No post title / Rewrite

When I click on "write a new post" (at least in my checked out version) 
the id is auto-inserted in the post-slug-field. If I immediatly change 
to the advanced-edit-mode the post-slug will still be the id and not 
being replaced with whatever title I come up with when hitting 
"publish". Maybe Wordpress "thinks" that the post is already published 
while it is not?
