LE COBOL Conversion

How many have experienced the below issue when converting to LE from Cobol II:
 
[color=#2807ff]If an LE COBOL program is entered multiple times in a single online DC/UCF task, normal processing is that the VALUE clauses in working storage are initialized only on the first entry. [color]
 
Does this apply to existing VS Cobol II programs using the LE Runtime environment, can anyone respond to this with personal experience. 
 
This is because the CA-IDMS/DC/UCF system only establishes the LE environment once per program per task.  This is far more efficient than reestablishing the environment for each invocation of the program.
 
Does this also applies to existing VS Cobol II programs using the LE Runtime environment, can anyone respond to this with personal experience. 
 
We do not have any LE COBOL IDMS DC-COBOL programs at this time and are not plannong on re-compiling any under LE at this time.
