Why am I unable to pass eventCount to a panel title using a token?

Legend

I did a dashboard panel that shows stats count results with a pie chart.
I'd like to show in the panel title the total number of events (not the result number).
I already used tokens to do this in other dashboards and usually runs well. This is an example:

<title>Status ($Antivirus_count$)</title>
        <search>
          <query>index=XXX ...| stats count by Status</query>
          <progress>
            <set token="Antivirus_count">$job.eventCount$</set>
          </progress>
          <cancelled>
            <unset token="Antivirus_count"></unset>
          </cancelled>
.....

but in this last panel, I have a very long search string with three piped stats count and where clauses; at the end I have a stats count command to show.

I don't understand why in this panel, the result is always 0!
If I try to use as Token job.resultCount instead of job.eventCount, the title correctly shows the number of stats (2).

Anyone knows if there are situations where it's not possible to extract job.eventCount?

Thank you.

I'm curious if the search is un-setting the token without you knowing.

 What happens if you removed the <cancelled> <unset....</canceled> code?

It was a bug: using the 6.4.x version of Splunk the problem is solved.
