Completing tasks with subtasks


I have a task with subtasks. When I mark all the subtasks as completed, I expect the task to be marked as completed and to be taken off the list but the main task still remains in the list. How do I fix this problem?

I asked a question similar to this earlier; the reply that I received was that Parent tasks never auto-complete when sub-tasks are completed. I would imagine that the rational would be that even though the (current) sub-tasks are complete, the Parent remains so that additional sub-tasks could be assigned without the need to recreate the Parent task.
