[logback-user] ReconfigureOnChangeFilter does not reuse context properties?

I'm using a config file wich looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<configuration scan="true" scanPeriod="60 seconds" >
<appender name="cms" class="ch.qos.logback.core.FileAppender">
      <pattern>%d %30.30t %-5p %45.45c - %m%n</pattern>
  <appender name="R" class="ch.qos.logback.core.FileAppender">
      <pattern>%d %30.30t %-5p %45.45c - %m%n</pattern>
  </appender>  <logger name="ch.mysign" additivity="false" level="INFO">
    <appender-ref ref="cms"/>
  <root level="WARN">
    <appender-ref ref="R"/>

The parameter ${pathToLogs} comes from the following code:

            LoggerContext context = (LoggerContext) LoggerFactory.getILoggerFactory();
		JoranConfigurator configurator = new JoranConfigurator();
		configurator.setContext( context );
		context.putProperty( "pathToLog", "my-path-to-the-external-logs" );
		configurator.doConfigure("my-logback-config.xml" );
	catch ( JoranException je )
		System.out.println( je.getMessage() );

If I change the config file, the property "pathToLog" gets lost. Is this the same issue 
as descibed in [1]? If yes, is it a problem to reuse the context or at least the properties
of the old context?
