I'm using ROS1 kinetic and I have a strange behaviour in Rviz.

I'm creating points on a map using the "publish point" tool. I'm displaying them in Rviz through the PointStamped display type.

I would like to click up to 10 points and visualize them all in rviz. For this reason I set the history_length parameter to 10.

However there is a strange behaviour: the first 10 clicked points are not displayed, while I get what I was looking for from the 11th point.

Note that it's not acting as a queue: the 1st point displayed is the 11th published not the 1st one.

How to avoid having to publish 10 dummy messages?
