Av versus P mode difference (XS/1000D)

Tonight I was trying some different options and was confused by the results I was getting.

First I tried Av mode with Aperture of 4.0, Auto ISO (400 was selected) and the flash on. The resulting shutter speed was 1/6.

Then I tried P mode. The automatically selected aperture was 4.0, ISO 400 and the flash was still on. The shutter speed selected was 1/60.

Why did I not get the same results? When I raised the flash I was hoping in Av mode to get what I got in P.

Is there some setting that is not taken into account in one mode over the other and changing that setting would help?
