Is there something peculiar about a render :update block?

When doing RJS stuff of the form below, I seem to recall unexpected
behavoir where if I had many method calls within that block things
didn’t work as expected and variables would not have values I
expected. I know I am not being very specific and I don’t have an
example. I am trying to refactor some code where I have alot of code
inside the block and I am affraid I am going to have the same sort of
problem I used to have previously when I had written alot of RJS stuff
previously.

render :update do |page|

end

I tend to use render :update from within the controller in cases where
there are a small number (like 4 max) of method calls. Beyond that, I
think it improves readability and testability to move the method calls
to an rjs template.

Best regards,
Bill
