That'* a good question. The alternator is suppose to stop charging if it doesn't see voltage on that little wire. You seem to have another issue going on.

You have to leave it disconnected while the engine is off. Something to do with the electronics in the alternator.

Seriously, I think you should take your car to a shop and have them do some tests. If you describe to them the jumper method, it will save them time and probably narrow down your problem.
