You're right, it's because a variable is cleared when it is preserved.
Don't know why (Ralf, any idea?)

To fix this, redefine the ``preserve'' tag:
<defsubst preserve __variable whitespace=delete>
<set-var __index=<array:size __vars>>
<if <var-exists <get-var-once __variable>>
    <set-var __vars[<get-var __index>]="<get-var-once <get-var-once __variable>>">
    <set-var __vars[<get-var __index>]="-">
