[pmwiki-users] Preview doesn't resolve page text variables

If it's not a bug, then "Preview" is a misnamed feature. Anything that  
shows the old values is not really a preview.

The current behavior limits PmWiki's potential to do some interesting  
applications that rely on PTVs. Because I use PTVs heavily, I have to  
remove preview capability from my edit form!

Is there any way for me to make a patch that would make Preview really  
preview the page?
