 This sounds like an issue that has been run into before, Related to the
 fact that on some hosts, an update-check cannot be executed within the
 timeframe allowed on the new page load..

 The reason why it happens that the update check is re-performed, is due to
 that the transients cannot be modified, without increasing the time the
 transient can live. If theres 60seconds left on the update ttransient, and
 ts modified, it'll keep that (potentially stale) transient for another 12
 hours.. I dont believe theres currently a way to determine how  much time
 is left for a given transient.

 I'm going to take a closer look at this time permitting.
