Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you've uncovered
a GNATS bug. The condition is ignored for the require-change-reason
flag, resulting in an error if you haven't supplied a change
reason when the field changes, irrespective of the on-change

The good news is that it doesn't appear to be too difficult
to remedy. Hopefully, we'll have a fix for this in the next
release. In the meantime, perhaps someone can file this as a
bug so it doesn't get dropped.
