The dupe algorithm in the servers (and, I suspect, aprs.fi) is based on a
30 second -sliding- window and is individual packet-specific.  This means
that, for instance, what appears to be inconsistent in your example is
actually very consistent.  Packet #3 is a duplicate of packet #1 (29
seconds apart). Packet #2 does -not- replace packet #1 in the dupe check
algorithm.  Packets are checked based solely on the sender callsign-SSID,
the destination callsign (SSID ignored), and data without regard to later
packets with different data (each packet is consider individually because
that is how you prevent loops).  This is as designed and described at
www.aprs-is.net
