I created a sub-task. Then I edited it to change the original time estimate of the sub-task. But this automatically changes the resolution of the status to 'fixed'. Why?
You (or one of the other admins) have added the "resolution" field to the "Edit" screen for that issue type.
Remove it immediately, it's setting the resolution on every issue you edit.
The resolution field should only be added to transition screens, never edit or create (well, ok, there is one case, but generally, no, never)
There is a use for having it on "Create" sometimes, but not "edit". There are situations where you create issues for certain processes, where you actually need the resolution set initially. Not many, and it's usually for "retrospective" data where you are logging something that's happened and been dealt with for clarity of history.
