We were just talking about this in our lab. It seems pretty plain to me at 
least that if a PI puts a lot of time into traing a student, s/he may just
want to keep the student around as a post-doc, although this clearly may not 
be the best move for the student carreer-wise. This is (one reason) why it's
good to have mentors who are not "invested" in you.
