The status of a task in relation to the logged in resource is shown on the Task tab on the Organizer page. Where as, the task status in the WBS, or task properties is not specific to a resource.
This is working as designed. The status field in the organizer represents the status of the task in regards to the resource, NOT the status of the task as viewed in project WBS. In the organizer the field "Status" and "Assignment Status" represent the same thing.
