You cannot have in a page such a thing :
  myPtv: {$:myPtv}

You are redefining the myPtv variable with itself.

This caused an endless loop in old versions of PmWiki, and was fixed in 2.2.0 
beta 56. See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PITS/00915 .

In this case, "{$:myPtv}" will and should be empty.

You can have what you expect in two ways :
  myPtv: [[!Blem]]
  this shows exactly what I assume you expect,

or :
  (:myPtv: [[!Blem]]:)
  my Ptv: {$:myPtv} 
  note the space in "my Ptv"
