Does anyone know how to stop two Manipulate objects from appearing to re-evaluate when they are both visble in a Notebook window? 

I have created a two Manipulate objects that display interactive graphics. Each one is contained in separate output cells which means, in principle, the variables used inside the Manipulates are Localized. The names of the sliders are the same in each Manipulate (but that shouldn't matter?). 

When one Manipulate is visible the RHS Bracket around the cell shows the normal state for a cell that has been evaluated, however, when you scroll and both are visible in the notebook window the cell brackets start to flash with double lines and yellow suggesting the cell is re-evaluating. 

Any ideas on how to stop this?
