Document.compare with TOC fails in 19.11

I’m using the latest version Aspose.Words for Java 19.11. Since 19.11 comparing two documents with a TOC that are the exact same fails with them being marked as unequal. Here’s the code:

Document doc = new Document("input.docx");
Document docB = new Document("expected.docx");
doc.compare(docB, "test", new Date());
int revs = doc.getRevisions().getCount();
