    You have selected "WBS determines the dates".  So the dates on the assigned WBS are passed down to the activities and they have to work within those dates.  Strange things can happen if the dates aren't aligned.

    Is there a reason you wan this?  Otherwise change to strict bottom up planning.

    I also usually use backwards scheduling as the finish date is more critical that the start date.
