My question here: If you make the engine take the transition like this is the previous task completed? Or is this the wrong approach and I should just change the assignment of the task in jBPM?

In 3 it is ended (and configurable) in 4 it is not ended (not configurable) but there is a jira issue for this to make it compatible again. Reassignment is also an option, but that is not visible in the processdefinition then.

"The European guy" wrote : If the task was marked completed when the timeout transition was taken wouldn't this be a bit strange for reports on processes because actually the first person did not complete the task but it was marked as completed?

That is why the task lifecycle is so interesting since you can add an additional 'state' (not a node but the state of a task ;-))
