Description

When you update help and specify the verbose switch you see messages similar to the following:

PS> Update-Help  -Verbose -Force

VERBOSE: Your connection has been redirected to the following URI:
"http://download.microsoft.com/download/A/1/A/A1AC8D0F-17C3-45F1-8D14-F024AF5A28B8/"
VERBOSE: Microsoft.PowerShell.Utility: Updated
C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\en-US\Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.Utility.dll-help.xml. Culture en-US
Version 3.1.0.0

Based on these messages  I can see that the Utility module file has a new version, 3.1.0.0, and it was updated successfully.

If I run Update-Help again (and again) I get the same messages which doesn't make sense at all. If a file was updated the first time why it appears as updated in subsequent executions?
