Manipulate[] CreateDocument[] BUG ???


hi everyone, i try to set up two or more Manipulate[] Panels
originated in seperate notebooks.

for the creation of the notebooks i use CreateDocument[]
the code below defines a function A when invoked creates a notebook
containing one Manipulate[] Panel
then A is invoked twice such that 2 notebooks are generated.
but when i try to move the slider s in both Panels the local variable
k gets somehow corrupted.
changeing Module to DynamicModule does not help.

same code works fine if CreateDocument@ ommited, then two Manipulate[]
are generated and working fine but both inside the current notebook.

any clues on whats happening ?
is it a bug or a feature  ?

(* corrupt example*)
A := Module[{k},
   	k = 1;
   	CreateDocument@Manipulate[
     		k*s,
     		{{s, 1}, 1, 10}
     	]
   ];
A
A

(* working example *)
A := Module[{k},
   	k = 1;
   	Manipulate[
     		k*s,
     		{{s, 1}, 1, 10}
     	]
   ];
A
