Although the form presented allows selection between existing status and default status, if the existing status is "Closed", the change is not accepted. As a result, the new Issue is created with the Status = Closed and the changes to Subject and Description not done.

You should check your workflow (Administration\Workflow) for your role in the project in which you are testing.
I tested with an issue in a project on my test site, and it works perfectly fine, the copied task is changed from Closed to New.

Have tried again with the same result.

I've modified the workflow to allow all users to change status from Closed to New. I can modify an existing Closed issue to New. But the copy does not allow the change. It accepts selection from dropdown but does not do the change.

The Redmine version is: 3.0.1.stable.

Fixed by #23610 for upcoming Redmine 3.4.0.
Issue status is reset to default when an issue is copied and you can choose from all allowed statuses for a new issue.
