It seems that we forgot to update the instance_states collection, i.e.
the FSM describing possible state transitions, when the set of states
that can be reported for an instance was clamped down.

One side-effect of this is that we'll report the wrong actions for
instances, as those are computed from the FSM using instance_action_for.
