Schedule Project Button - problem (Mercury 6.0)

Imagine the situation:
1. Task is starting in the past and ends in the future. Task is 50% complete. Task has no constraints. Task is in Ready state.
2. press "Schedule Project" button
3. specify scheduling date today (or beging of the task - end result is the same)

Expected behaviour:
Completed part of the task will remain in the past and uncompleted part will go to future.

Real behaviour:
The whole task is moved after the current date - even completed part of it. Basically, whenever I press Schedule Project button all partially completed tasks just move to future. and I do not want this. I want only incompleted part of tasks to move to future.

Question:
What is the logic behind "Schedule Project" button?
What is the correct way to use it?
How to cope with incompleted tasks like expolained above?

PS:
It looks like the only solution is start splitting tasks manually into 2 tasks - one completed to remain in past and one incomleted to be moved to future. But this is ??? ridiculous? It will generate enormous ammount of tasks that are , actually , one task but I need to split it every time before I press Schedule project button.
