I'd like to see how you do that ;-)

\thispagestyle is activated when LaTeX cuts the scroll, so if the float
object is moved to the next page, the pagestyle there is unaffected (but
the original page is). In other words this problem in the same category as
trying to get the current page number in running text by using \thepage
(which doesn't work) instead of using a label and reference.
