No, this (should..) never happends. You can uncheck 
the "update hack" option, however : this option forces 
the "not updated" flag on certain cases (especially 
when the server gives a supposedly updated page, but 
which has the same size than the old one)

Again, the only problem encountered if the contrary: 
unnecessary updated generated by dynamic contents
