When you see the little round (or square on IE) orange blob on the SE top-bar (do these things have better names) it shows you have reviews pending.

Once you've made a review, it doesn't refresh, or if it does it does so very slowly. I know the site uses AJAX, so I don't see why this would be impossible to implement.

Is this or is it a flaw?

For suggested edit reviews, which I believe is what you are refering to, this has been reinstated.

There also was a pending review count in the tab header of other review queues at one point, but it has been disabled for performance reasons.

(per a developper's answer on the main Meta)
