It seems that information in a field that is type "text" is not being exposed to pathauto when creating a url. I've got several content types on my site. Those that create a url from other field types (e.g. integer or term reference) are working fine (as are those using [node:title], etc.). It seems that just information relating to a text type isn't pulling through into the url.
