Target version:-
Resolution:Invalid Affected version:1.1.2


  1. your database version: MySQL 14.12
  2. your Ruby version: Ruby 1.8.7 (i386-mingw32)
  3. your Rails version: Rails 2.3.5
  4. your Redmine version: 1.1.2 Stable

Create Task 1 with due date today + 1
Create Task 2 with start date today + 2

Add relation Task 2 follows Task 1. Now change start date of Task 2 to be today + 5 (pushed to the right). Redmine will allow the tasks to be "decoupled". Now change the due date of Task 1 to today + 2. Redmine will automatically move Task 1 to butt up against Task 1 again. It seems like if a user manually adjusts a task with a dependency to a different date, Redmine should honor that and only adjust it if a predecessor extends out past the start date.
