Each time I try to retweet one particular user who's nick finish but "_" (JohnSmith_) I have the error "@root: User `JohnSmith_' does not exist or didn't post any statuses recently" even if his tweet was done in the last 5 minutes.

You have to omit the _. Not very intuitive, I know. :-/ The reason is that the _ is in his/her IRC nickname and nicknames are invisible to the IM modules (they're an IRC detail).

hrm, this is non-trivial for bitlbee to do the mapping internally?

It could be done but I'm not too enthusiastic about the idea. The show_ids feature makes it less relevant, also.
