Quick Subtasks: Inheriting fixversion no longer working under JIRA 7

We use the Quick Subtasks plugin to automatically create a security review subtask at a certain point in our release approval workflow.  We use the following configuration for the Quick Subtasks plugin:

- Security Review - @{summary} / description:"Perform a security review for this release" assignee:"@inherit" fixversion:"@inherit"

This was working fine in JIRA 6.4, but since upgrading to 7.0.2, the screen freezes when a user performs the transition that creates the subtask.  I found that removing fixversion:"@inherit" stops the workflow freezing, but it also means that the fix version isn't set correctly on the sub task.

We have had issues with other systems that integration with JIRA and use the fix version field, so I'm wondering if something changed in JIRA 7.

Has anyone else noticed this?

We believe that this issue was caused by using MS SQL Server but having READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT set to OFF.  We changed this to ON as per Connecting JIRA applications to SQL Server 2012 and the issue appears to be resolved.
