This is correct. Still it is possible to do what the original poster
requested. The trick is to assign the periodical updater to a
variable, not on the smalltalk side but on the JavaScript side. This
can be done like this:

html periodical
     assignLocalTo: 'per'

Now in a different rendering pass you can reference the existing
periodical updater (and not creating a new one) by doing something
like this:

html periodical
    alias: 'per';

Hope this helps.
