Lead Conversion mapping does not work with all field types

I have 2 custom fields in both lead and contact like
Field 1 - Checkbox (default is unchecked)
Field 2 - Text
I have defined the lead conversion mapping where :
Field 1 in leads maps to Field 1 in contacts and,
Field 2 in leads maps to Field 2 in contacts
The problem I am facing is that upon conversion, even after mapping has been defined, the value of field 1 is not carried over to contact where value for field 2 is successfully transfered. Is it a limitation from salesforces' end that only selected field type value will be transfered to account/contact upon lead conversion.
Although i can move the value using the API but I wish to do it as an automated process, where salesforce does it on its own.
Thanking you in anticipation
