I added a couple of trackers (eg support, task). I want my main issues to be features (or bugs) and attach sub issues to them (mostly tasks).

When I make a task as standalone issue it remains a task when I submit (save). When I then edit the issue and add a parent issue ID and save, the tracker changes to 'bug'.
When I make a feature issue, save, then in the issue detail view I add a subtask, I can still set the tracker to task for the new sub issue, but when saving, it appears to be set to 'bug' again.

Update: I might have found the problem. We use the Backlog plugin for our scrum team. Seems the settingspage of that module (/settings/plugin/redmine_backlogs/) lets you chose the type of tracker for features and tasks. The task-typewas set to tracker bug.

This is a problem. This setting should only be applied when the module Backlogs is activated for the specific project but now it seems to have an impact on all projects?
