Probably the updated table has a trigger which makes another update, so there are in fact two updates. This is the reason why sql analizer returns two outputs: one for the original update, and one for the updated made inside the trigger.

Hope it helps.

While checking as per the comments of "gplana", Please also check if you have enabled "Cascade Updates".
If that is the case, still you can get such result.
