Auto-assign not following configuration

I have the "Allow unassigned issues" set to ON in Systems settings An the Default Assignee in the Roles section of the project set to "Unassigned". Still whenever i create a new issue, leaving the field assignee to "Automatic", it will set the Project Lead as assignee, ignoring my "unassigned" configuration! What can i do to make it work as it supposed to do? P.S: We use latest Jira Agile aka GreenHopper, could that have a negative effect?

Ok, I found the SOLUTION:
There's another setting which we forgot to have a look at: The Component Lead. Where, it was set to project lead. I switched it to Default (Unassigned), now it works as expected.
