This is because you have set up your TODO keywords as `sequence',
not as `type'.  So the repeater assumes that this is a sequence
of states that should be repeated.

If you did


this would work as you expect.

Type or sequence make a difference only in two situations:

1. When the repeater rests an entry
2. When you press C-c C-t and *don't* use fast access keys
    to TODO states.  Then `C-c C-t' will jump directly to DONE
    from any not-done state.

Sounds pretty consistent to me.

I guess we could have a property to force a particular repeat state
where needed....
