Andrea's kludge works for me.  My understanding is that only a C-c C-c
in the TBLFM would actually update the table.

Looking at the documentation at 


again, I would have expected


to be a correct way of referring to the 3rd column in the row after the
first hline, rather than the entire row.   It is unclear
to me what 


as I used in my example above should correspond to.
