PS pressure hose working loose

A few months ago I suddenly lost power assistance on my steering just as I was pulling into the car park at work. Turned out that the pressure hose had come loose where it screws into the pump and sprayed fluid everywhere. Replaced the O-ring, tightened it back down and everything was fine.

This morning I noticed that it had started working loose again, but I caught it early this time, so I'd only lost a small amount of fluid. It's no big deal to re-tighten it every so often, but is this actually a symptom of a bigger problem that I need to deal with, or just a Jeep thing?

Thats freaky! If the hose is in a bind maybe its putting tension on the fitting? Not much room to put it in wrong though. I'm stumped on this one.
