No progress on this. I tried sailfish firmware and couldn't get it to work with my machine, ended up putting standard firmware back on. The firmware install process for my replicator 1 is so stupid it makes me dumber every time I do it. have not played around with limiting z axis speed or anything, let me know if you can get the wipe function working. Would be good to fix ooze issues with dual extrusion. Makerbot appears to have abandoned this feature as it is not even an option on the Replicator 2.
Hmm, I was considering using Wipe for another purpose, but that's a bummer if it doesn't work with the Replicator 1.
Have you set a limit to your Z-axis speed?
If I remember correctly, the sailfish-firmware installation instructions advised a limit of 16mm/s. (unfortunately, it appears that the MBi-hosted sailfish installation guide is unavailable at the moment, and my machine is busy)

Sandwich silicone rubber wiper between bucket and wiper arm, then assemble using #4-40 x 5/8"L machine screws and #4-40 nuts. Flames fit into groove on either side of bucket, held in place by any glue (I used CA glue).
Find perforated rectangular cutout on left side of replicator back panel and pop it out, install the wiper the same way the filament spools are mounted. Tweak the height of your silicone wiper sheet if necessary so that it just flicks the nozzles when they pass over it.
Skeinforge wipe settings for my machine were as follows (X,Y,Z):
