I don't use this, but replicating your example, I don't get the behavior you do.
- I added your todo definitions to my .emacs
- I created a simple top-level headline in a blank file and used C-c
C-t to make it a PROJECT
- I added three second-level headlines and made them all TODOs
- I marked them done one by one and the top level always stayed as a PROJECT

My end result:
| * PROJECT some project [3/3]
| ** DONE do something
|   CLOSED: [2011-03-15 Tue 09:51]
| ** DONE do something else
|   CLOSED: [2011-03-15 Tue 09:50]
| ** DONE do something further
|   CLOSED: [2011-03-15 Tue 09:49]

Perhaps list your org-mode version? Others will be able to debug
better than I can. Perhaps start with a simple, blank file as well (or
maybe you already are?). I can't figure out what would trigger it from
PROJECT to the keyword in another sequence without directly specifying

Good luck,
