Writing to UART_DR register clears the RXNE bit?

I was using a Union Structure, which required a read to the register..

I have STM32F207 chip...

Using UART2, I've tried to do bidirectional data sending and receiving.  However, I've noticed that when I write a byte to UART_DR, the RXNE bit is clearing.  This bit should only clear when I READ UART_DR. 

"In single buffer mode, clearing the RXNE bit is performed by a software read to the
USART_DR register. The RXNE flag can also be cleared by writing a zero to it. ..." ( RM0033 pg 610 - DOCID 15403 Rev 3)

Help! Not sure what's going on. Is this a problem with the chip?
