[erlang-questions] mnesia:dirty_update_counter returns 'ok' in R14B04

The docs state that mnesia:dirty_update_counter should return NewVal

In fact, I get:

()7> mnesia:dirty_read(external_eid, all).
mnesia:dirty_update_counter(external_eid, all, 1).
mnesia:dirty_read(external_eid, all).

This is not particularly helpful :-|

Can anyone shed any light on this? The table is created with default options.
