          I think it could be depend on settings on your portlet-instances.xml file.
          If you have declared "if-exists" tag for this portlet in your portlet-instances.xml in this way:

          <if-exists>overwrite</if-exists>
          <instance>
           <instance-id>YourPortletInstance</instance-id>
           <portlet-ref>yourApp.yourPortlet</portlet-ref>
          </instance>
          

          You are telling the container to destroy any existing object and create a new one.

          If would you like the container retains any existing copy and creates a new instance, then you must set "keep" as value of this tag, in this way:
          <if-exists>keep</if-exists>
          <instance>
           <instance-id>YourPortletInstance</instance-id>
           <portlet-ref>yourApp.yourPortlet</portlet-ref>
          </instance>
          

          Try this ;)

          Hope this helps
