Subtask should inherit parent status

I am trying to get the subtask to inherit the parent's status by adding a post function at transition: Create Issue. The transition have 3 post functions

1) The fiels status will take the value from status. Source issue is the parent, destination the sub-task

2) Creates the issue originally

3) Fire a issue careted event that can be processes by the listeners

but it does not work. If I try to inherit the Description field it works OK!

What's wrong?
