Right, do you know why?

update_attribute_with_validation_skipping(name, value)

Updates a single attribute and saves the record without going through the normal validation procedure. This is especially useful for boolean flags on existing records. The regular update_attribute method in Base is replaced with this when the validations module is mixed in, which it is by default.

I know this doesn't help, but update_attribute already skips validations
