Hi Nasser,

Although this does not explain the weird behavior your reported, the 
following expression should be close to what you are looking for. (The 
trick is to explicitly tell Mathematica not to add any tick on the upper 
and right frames.)

BarChart[{1, 2, 3}, Frame -> True, BarLabels -> None,
  FrameTicks -> {{1, 2, 3}, {0, 1}, None, None}]
