Not sure how hard it would be to implement that one, but I think you should appear or disappear from the watchers list when you click on the "Watch" link in an issue.

any news on this?

Another suggestion could be a simple jQuery script, which requests the current watchers and load them into the div #watchers.

I already solved this issue, but there was another problem - when you add user(s) from modal window then if you want see list of watchers you should refresh page, but this diff solved all of this problems.

Developed on Redmine 2.5.2.

See diff.
