It's not possible to use a dynamic tag on a scrolling line in the WPS.
For example, with %s%ar%pc, the time won't be updated correctly even though the line doesn't scroll.
Another example is the next track information. If it is on a scrolling line, it won't be updated correctly either.
This bug isn't caused by the tokenizer. It was already present in the old code. In fact, it wasn't present in the tokenizer code until this commit : http://svn.rockbox.org/viewvc.cgi/trunk/apps/gui/gwps-common.c?r1=13080&r2=13081, which was in
So basically it looks like scrolling lines and dynamic tags are incompatible. Either lines with dynamic tags can't scroll, or dynamic tags on scrolling lines aren't updated right.
Currently, a workaround is to use sublines to force a refresh.
There is a forum thread with a rather interesting discussion about this issue: http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=12055.0
