Static block shows twice - why?

I have a static block set up, which (for now) consists solely of text. It’s id is twitter_block.

I have the following in catalog.xml:

<reference name="right">
<
block type="cms/block" name="right.permanent.callout">
<
action method="setBlockId"><block_id>warehouse_sale</block_id></action>
</
block>
<
block type="cms/block" name="right.permanent.callout">
<
action method="setBlockId"><block_id>twitter_block</block_id></action>
</
block>
</
reference>

The twitter_block static block shows twice, one immediately after the other. I have no idea why.

Any takers?

I have the exact same issue!

You can replace

<block type="cms/block" name="right.permanent.callout">
<
action method="setBlockId"><block_id>twitter_block</block_id></action>
</
block>

with:

<block type="cms/block" name="cms_twitter_block">
<
action method="setBlockId"><block_id>twitter_block</block_id></action>
</
block>

I think it will solve your problem.

But for me, if I change right.permanent.callout with cms_name_block, in Internet explorer the flash content I’m trying to include there goes all nuts!
