In the next patch, please add comment in the place of the previous break, 
explaining why the break is absent.

> Region state transitions do not work correctly for READY_TO_MERGE/SPLIT.  
> [~thiruvel] and I noticed this is due to break statements being in the wrong 
> place in AssignmentManager.  This allows a race condition for example in 
> which one of the regions being merged could be moved concurrently, resulting 
> in the merge transaction failing and then double assignment and/or dataloss.  
> This bug appears to only affect branch-1 (for example 1.3 and 1.4) and not 
> branch-2 as the relevant code in AM has since been rewritten.
