I'm properly calling api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline with
include_rts as true and retweets are not being included. The only
stream that I can get to return retweets (because it doesn't even
require the include_rts parameter) is the home_timeline.

For example, the following doesn't work:
http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/RWW.xml?count=20&page=1&include_rts=true

The worst part about this is not just that the include_rts parameter
doesn't work for including retweets, the returned timeline doesn't
even have 20 records in it when there are retweets. In other words,
the API is not only ignoring the include_rts parameter but its not
even returning the right number of requested records when it thinks
include_rts is false.

This totally screws up my pagination methods because I'm getting less
than the expected number of records back, so my app thinks there's no
more timeline to be retrieved. I certainly don't want to just always
include a "next page" link when there really aren't any more records
left.

Also, the count parameter is being ignored in all of this as well, but
I've latched on to another thread about that.
