Apparently cascading update/delete is active for tasks plus their subtasks.

That's probably not intended - especially due to the fact that the application doesn't state that fact anywhere (e.g. dialog upon deletion). Also the views don't suggest such a "tight" binding of subtasks to their according parent-tasks.

Confirmed on latest trunk. This should at least be mentioned upon deletion IMHO...

Agreed, lets add a message about that for now. Once I've finished cleaning up the REST API, I'd like to "finish" up subtasks.
