Did you add new questions for the clustering that differentiate between the long and short vowels? If not, they will simply be clustered together and share acoustic models.
If you did add such questions, then perhaps there are so few instances of the long vowels (relative to the short ones) that they get clustered together with the short vowels anyway. You can inspect the decision trees to see what questions were used, to find out if this is the case.
