Why does my loop finish before the criteria has been met?

I have created a simple workflow which loops every 5 minutes until two fields on the current item are no longer "empty" eg.


Loop while: value 1 is empty AND value 2 is empty


The loop ends once value 1 is populated and value 2 is still empty. I've tried a few different variants on this loop, and I get a variation of results none of which match the actual criteria.


I've tried:


workflow 1 status is not "completed" AND workflow 2 status is not "completed"


workflow 1 status equals "In progress" AND workflow 2 status equals "In progress"


I have even tried reversing the logic, however this just exits the loop immediately.
