Observers and notification order for associated records


Is it by design that the following happens, or is it an ActiveRecord
bug (Rails 2.0.2)?

@post = Post.find(params[:id])[:comment])

Assuming I have a PostObserver which observes after_update, what
happens is:

  1. Transaction BEGINS
  2. @post is saved
  3. PostObserver#after_update is called
  4. Comment is created
  5. Transaction COMMITED

As this is a transaction I would expect to get the after_update, AFTER
all associated records are created/updated but this is not the case.

Has anyone come across this before?
