First off, I'm not sure where the "right" place to post this is, whether it's in Page Title, Token or Pathauto, BUT, I've been able to replicate the same problem, over several installs.
Assuming all three modules are installed: Page Title, Token & Pathauto
Assuming content type is: newpage
Assuming page title for a newpage node is: this is a new page!
I set the node pattern for a content type to: newpage/[page-title-raw] so the url alias will be pulled from the page title, instead of the node "heading" or node title.
When I create a node of the content type "newpage", plugin my page title and save the node for the first time, I get a URL alias of: /newpage/create-newpage instead of /newpage/this-is-a-new-page
Now, if I go back in and edit that same node, go to URL Path Settings, the "Automatic Alias" is unchecked. Once I check it and save the node, it creates the proper URL alias of: /newpage/this-is-a-new-page
Has anyone else experienced or been able to duplicate this? Also, is it a page title, token or pathauto issue?
