I discovered this bug on TWiki.org's blog.

TWiki:Main.LinaAcostaWatchlist has "All" and "New" set for the Blog web. If a user adds a blog comment, a new topic is created if this is the first comment of a blog. In which case the user comment shows up in the comment topic as it should, but the watchlist topic has the same commend added as well!

Actual example:

The WatchlistPlugin bug shows up when a CommentPlugin comment is added to a new topic. It does not show up if a comment is added to an existing topic. I verified this with another first comment on a blog topic.
