WSUS - New Update already expired and auto-declined (KB970789)

Last night at 11PM our WSUS server synchronized with Microsoft Update and sent me an email to inform me that it saw a new update available:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970789

When I go into my WSUS console this morning and try to approve that update, WSUS reports "The selected update has expired and cannot be approved for installation.  It is recommended you decline this update."

When I bring up the update status summary report for this update, it shows that my approval summary for all groups is "Not Approved."

Yet when I go look at the MSKB article, it does not seem to indicate that this update has been rescinded or superseded by another update?

Why did this update expire and auto-decline at some point in the 9 hours since the system discovered it's existence?

There must have been a bug in it.  Not surprising since this is a RC version of the OS.  And, they must have found the bug only after they released the update.  This seems to happen at least once a year, if not more than that.

...but when you go look at the KB on the Microsoft website, it has not been rescinded, superseded, removed or anything like that--it's a published/available update.  And while yes, the update itself is for a product that itself is in beta, the WSUS and all that infrastructure is very much in production.

I just checked my 32bit win7 and it is installed on that laptop.  So I guess it's a good update.  I predict that this is a fluke with WSUS and will resolve itself over the next week.
