I understand that, so let me write it more clearly:

1. the 'reject' state is being set at the beginning
2. the 'update' module returns 'updated' but this is discarded,
   hence the return code remains at 'reject'
3. the 'reject' result is being *ignored* when the update{} block completes
4. the 'reject' result causes a return when the outer if{} block completes

So: an update inside an 'if' causes a reject return; an update outside of an
'if' leaves the result as reject but doesn't return.

If that's the designed behaviour, it's pretty obscure.
