Is COM interop more stable than dotnet's?

I'm recalling something for the the dotnet reality check...

Because dotnet is a more "complete" object model than COM (inheritance and shadowing of public and private aspects) and because different languages (VB.NET and C# to name two) have somewhat different rules for inheritance, it may be that dotnet has more interop problems than COM. I couldn't say because I don't know COM.

A problem with dotnet inheritance was documented some time ago. I don't believe it has been fixed.
