Locked Loops -- playback not synced to metronome?

Hi! I just started playing around with Locked Loops and I think the behaviour of the patch is a little strange regarding synchronisation:

If I record one or more loops ,
stop the playback, and then
start the playback again…

… then the playback is not synced to the metronome (unless I manage to press start at exactly the right time)! The same thing happens regardless of me using the “global start” or starting individual tracks.

Is this a feature or a bug?
