This is certainly a problem on LO side. I know they have done a lot of
changes in the API and I don't know how compatible these changes are.
Often it is more a problem of the underlying implementation and
unexpected side effects.

The side concept comes from AOO and was merged/integrated in LO and I
doubt that anybody really knows there about the details. It took several
iteration until they got it stable or usable at all.
