App restarts when I do not want it to

Hello, I am running Appium 1.6.5 on iOS 10.12 with XCode 8. I am writing a test suite for my iOS application and do not want it to restart in between tests. I set fullReset = true and noReset = false. I have also tried almost every other permutation of these booleans but nothing seems to work. Is there something trivial that I am missing or is this a bug in Appium?
