Java Web Start does not call stop() for dragged applets?

I am writing a plugin that saves applet data on stop() with JNLP PersistenceService and restores it on next run.

When I run it in a browser, it saves applet data successfully. But when I run it from the desktop after I drag it from the browser window and make a desktop shortcut, it does not save at all.

I managed to run it with a debugger and found that stop() was not called when I close its window. I may be wrong but at least a break point at the beginning of stop() was not hit.

The JRE's version is 6u10-rc2.
