I just reproduced that on my Mac with MiniBrowser from trunk.

Only after I click somewhere else on the page is the widget updated with

With the example you provided it only updates for me after i clicked the
url bar.
I could imagine it has something to do with refreshing the widget, which by
pressing the url bar triggers the update due to the blinking cursor.
But i did not look into it any further.

Is that a known issue? Can others confirm it? Should I file a bug report

A bug report or even a proposed fix is always very welcome! :)
