Transaction not working with update_attributes!

I am trying to wrap the updating of two models in a transaction and
when the transaction fails it is not rolling back.

My method is :

def update_attributes(user,params)
@user = user
@company = user.company
begin
User.transaction do
@user.update_attributes!(params[:user])
@company.update_attributes!(params[:company])
end
true
rescue
false
end

end

In the above method , if @user fails @company will not be saved but
not vice versa. My question is am I using transactions correctly and
if so what am I doing wrong?

thanks
James

Does activerecord try to do a rollback (check the logs) ? Are you
using a database that supports transaction (ie not mysql with myisam
tables)?
