We need more information about your environment:
1. Do you have a custom widget, that inherits Sitefinity document list widget?
2. Do you have more than one Sitefinity document list widgets in your page, this can cause the problem indeed?
3. Have you tried to modify somehow the documents collection?
We need exact steps to reproduce the problem.
