One could call it a bug, but it's not likely to be fixed.  The
values for page text variables are always taken from the *saved*
version of a page (and a previewed version of a page isn't saved yet).

I'm willing to entertain patches that make it possible to view page
text variables when a page is being previewed, but the fact that
it doesn't work now isn't exactly a bug in my book.
