Make sure you're NOT using system account when creating those workflows. The security update for SP2010 blocks work flows from automatically starting. Weird, I know. Use a different account for the application pool you're experiencing trouble with.

Now i am not using OntaskCreated activity because of its problems, just using CreateTask and setting my custom column value from CreateTaskProperties ExtendedProperties hash table.
