Forecast Override triggers Opportunity Validation Rule (customizable forecasting)

I just enabled forecast overrides (with Customizable Forecasting). Sales reps want to edit opportunity forecast stage. We have validation rules that prevent them from advancing the opportunity stage (for instance, can't advance the stage until you get pricing approval). 
 

These rules are apparently firing when they try to create a forecast override. I noticed that the lastmodifieddate on opportunity is altered when I enter a forecast override. But I don't understand why that should be, nor what field is being edited. The users want to override forecasts precisely because they are not able to advance the opp stage. 

How can I make the validation rule not fire in the case of a forecast override editing the opp?
