the writer layout is triggered by a timer, so if you create a document via
the API then the layout may or may not be finished.
the main consequence of this is the different position of soft-page-break
elements, but it may also affect frame positions.

here in Hamburg we use a tool called "convwatch" that compares documents
by printing them and then comparing the postscript files graphically.
this tool is apparently in the ooo repository in the module "testgraphical".
