Server validating a field with 3 rules at the same time?

Server validating a field with 3 rules at the same time?

Hi all,
I have a form that requires a complex validation by server.
There is a field should validate:
1- is required
2- must be unique (unique key)
3- must match a regular expression.

I added all the WAValidation server behaviours succesfully.

Then I added 3 divs containing all errors and applied the 'validation show if' server behaviour to each one respectively:
div1: error: field is required
div2: error: field must be unique in the database
div3: error: field must match a regualr expression

But when I submit the form without filling anything all 3 error messages appear.
I would expect to see only the div1 error.
Is this by design or am I missing something here?
TIA for any help.
