It's just not the way Hobbit (or BB, for that matter) works. The latest
status received is always the current one - sending a status with "+30"
only indicates that an update must be received within 30 minutes. It
doesn't mean that this status is valid for 30 minutes no matter what
else is received.

is broken. Either send another "red", or don't send anything at all.
