Correct. I learned about this a few days ago, when I posted this as a
primefaces issue in primefaces mobile forum and issue tracker, a few days
ago. Someone responded with some URLs to blogs that discuss this. Now, I
know how to handle this and now I know this is not an issue. :-)

starts up (even if it's already started). It also issues a start command to
the manager application for your web application (even if autoDeploy=true).
