I think I had similar situation, with this answer to the question above: you may 
want to share potentially large selection list(s) between multiple widgets, here 
widgets might be on the same form, or even on multiple forms for multiple users. 
It could be quite substantial memory savings... In this scenario, you need 
either multiple widgets have same instance of datatype on multiple widgets (is 
it even possible?), or use equals() instead of '==' as was suggested.
