I've always thought it was because when operating with several replicas,
that particular update did not apply to that particular instance.

For example, we replicate to branches all around the world, with each
branch having a slave for everyone else (to cut down on international
traffic).  Because everything gets stuffed into the one replog, it's quite
common to see for example the slurpd thread for Indonesia rejecting an
update meant for USA (it gets picked up by the USA thread).

I eventually got annoyed with this and other problems, and ended up
running multiple slurpds, one per branch.  Yes, we have a weird setup.
