This behavior would be a bug - workflow parameters should be preserved.
What release are you on - we fixed a bug related to this after the initial
August release (
that should be available in the latest august stable tag.
Is it possible you were on the August release but don't have this fix?
If it is a bug and is still present in the latest stable branch if you
could provide steps to reproduce it in a clean clone of Galaxy it could go
a long way toward helping us track down a fix.
