Hello Kevin,

may be some post functions are added to you workflow. 

Go to project workflow for current ticket, find transitions between "TO DO" and "Cancelled" and check post functions.Check post function in the tickets that have relationship with current ticket.

Hope, it helps.


if you have script runner plugin it is possible to create a service that can update tickets periodically:
