Ah, that's an interesting finding.

So I guess it will make sense to make sure an event that is
newly received from the data stream has *all* its data
refreshed from the stream. If there is no short text, for instance,
an already existing short text needs to be deleted etc.

Thanks for this report, I'll see how it can be fixed.
