TableViewer Refresh not preserving selection

I have a doubt about the refresh method of the TableViewer.

The API says that if I use refresh and set reveal as true, it will preserve the selection, however that doesn't seem to be the case, cause everytime I do it, it loses the selected row.

What I do is that I have an inputProvider that rebuilds the data array every 30 seconds, and when that happens I trigger the refresh to properly update, add, and remove rows.

Another thing I noticed is that everytime I do that, the tableViewer rows have a different ID everytime, seems like it's incrementing. If I do it this way, would I eventually have a problem if the id becomes too big, or when it reaches a limit will start back at 0?
