Strange results in MSP after time posting via timesheets in Clarity

We created a detailed project plan using MSP interface. Last Friday we opened the project up to Time posting in Clarity (in Clarity, project track mode is set to Clarity). After the times are posted in Clarity, we see strange results on tasks where times were posted.  On every task where actual hours were posted in Clarity, the duration and dates have changed. On all these tasks, the resource allocation at task level in MSP shows % different than the 100% allocation for these resources to the project. (In MSP, all tasks are defined as fixed duration, and in options, the check box for ‘Updating task status updates resource status’ is unchecked.) Tasks that now have actual hours but had no % complete, show 1% complete. - I read in one of the other postings here that this is how it works. Is that correct? Is there any way to avoid it and let the PM enter the % complete in MSP? Woud that be carried over to Clarity? I appreciate any insight into these issues.
