Ensuring that Approval Actions occur before Final Approval Actions?

I've got an approval process; in the sole Approval Step, there is a Field Update Approval Action, where it changes the record owner to a specified user.  Then, in the Final Approval Actions, I have a [workflow] Task which is configured to be assigned to (and notify) the current record owner.

The intention is that, upon approval, the record owner is changed, and a task is assigned to the new record owner. 

However, it appears that at least one of the Final Approval Actions (task creation) is occurring before the Approval Step's Approval Action (change of record ownership).  The task is being assigned to the record owner before the ownership is changed.  Afterward, the owner has indeed changed, but it's too late. 

Is this by design?  Suggested workaround?  Or have I configured it wrong?

I'm still seeing this behavior.  Is this a mirage?  Any help would be appreciated.
