Default priority not used when editing issue

We have recently changed our workflows and fields schemes. With this change we are using the default JIRA Priority field (we didn't use this before).

We have 3 priorities (High, Normal, Low) for which the default is set to Normal.

When creating a new issue this works fine. The priority is set to the default value.

But, when editing an issue that didn't have a priority set then the priority by default changes to High since that is the first priority in our list.

To solve this I've changed the priority order to Normal, High, Low and now it works fine... but I was wondering if there is anyway I can get the default priority selected when editing the issue.

Any suggestions?

Keep the priority field in the create screen, so that it always gets the detault value. Keep it simple.
