Comments do not survive two consecutive Document.compare calls

I have three documents, original, revision 1 and revision 2. Revisions are the same original document with suggestions and comments added. I open original document and revision 1. Then I call original.compare(revision 1). Everything is ok, changes are merged, comments are included in the original document. Now I can even save the original document, quit the application and start over - no matter what, the comments from the previous step are emptied when I do updatedOriginal.compare(revision 2). Comments from revision 2 are successfully added.

Uploaded test artifacts.

See the final document where the comment from Rev 1 is empty.

Thank you very much for your quick response. We are currently implementing a pilot for a client. We are considering a couple of options with Aspose being the favorite. However, this feature is a must. Is there any chance to have that fixed by the end of this month (Feb)?
