Why is issue matrix custom field in issue link mode showing sub task links?


I just installed the issue matrix plugin and try to configure some issue link behaviour.

I created a custom field and choose "Issue Links" in the Matrix Configuration. I did not select any link types as I want to include all types of links (except of sub tasks). When I now open an affected Issue that has issue links and also sub tasks assigned even the sub tasks appear in the issue matrix area.

It might be "works as designed" as the statement "No link types have been selected. Issue Matrix will show all issues linked to the issue." could be interpreted as "and yes - even sub tasks will be included!" But I would not expect this behaviour when selecting the Issue Link Mode. I hope that I just missed some configuration option. Any hint would be much appreciated.
