Supercoiled DNA

Has anyone noted plasmid DNA no longer being supercoiled?  It seems that 3
of my plasmids (all about 15kb) are no longer being supercoiled by the
bugs (DH5alpha).  I have tried LB and TB, and both CsCl preps and Wizard
preps are giving the same result.  I also re-transformed the bugs with
older supercoiled preps, and subsequently they are no longer supercoiled. 
Any help would be appreciated.
