Issue linking not working properly after workflow changes

Hi everyone!

In one project we created a new workflow and new workflow scheme (and permission scheme), swapped all the issues statuses as neccessary and everything works fine. Just one thing - when cloning (or linking) issues that are created after the workflow change everything works fine but when cloning issues that are created before the new workflow/scheme (for example issue TEST-123), a new cloned issue is not being created. What happens is that under the same issue (under Issue Links) appears:

is cloned byTEST-123

It is a messy story but maybe someone could have a clue what could be the possible reason of cloning working this way for issue created before our workflow changes?
We tried with the old workflow/wf scheme and then everything is okay.

Thank you very much! :)

Thank you John, yes it was very helpful.
We had put Fields Required validators to the Create transition and found out that after removing them cloning started to work just fine.
