Dragging issues between columns on the rapid board with no assignee

We have recently started using the Kanban Rapid Board in JIRA/Greenhopper and its working out fairly well for us.

I've built our own workflow and rapid board that allows for issues to move through the workflow how we like. Everything is working but for some reason we can't drag an issue between colums in the rapid board if the issue doesn't have an assignee.

It looks like only the first and last columns of a the rapid board can have no assignee. Our custom workflow allows an issue to have no assignee in certain steps. I have confirmed I can go directly to an issue and change its state in the workflow without an assignee, but on the rapid board I can't drag the issue to a new column unless there is an assignee.

Is this an inherity limitation of the rapid board, or am I missing something in our configuration?

Chet, can you post a screenshot of your workflow diagram and the Steps page? It's possible your custom workflow transitions for those particular columns have a condition that requires an assignee?

Are you sure that you have no condition set in these workflow transitions?
