OK, things are even stranger. I swapped the order of the lines, and
now it functions! This is very odd, and must be a bug of some type.
Again, the following WPS works:

First line: %pr%pb%bt
Second line: %s[%pn %pp/%pe] %fskb %pt %fbkbs/%ffhz: %?it<%it - |%fn -
>%?ia<%ia - |%d2 - >%?id<%id |%d1 >%?iy<(%iy)>

But, the following does not, with the second line being totally blank:

First line: %s[%pn %pp/%pe] %fskb %pt %fbkbs/%ffhz: %?it<%it - |%fn -
>%?ia<%ia - |%d2 - >%?id<%id |%d1 >%?iy<(%iy)>
Second line: %pr%pb%bt

Both are exactly the same, only swapping the order of the lines.
