Yes.  While a app built on a 12.0 or 12.1 system will often still work
on 12.2, there's no guarantee.  I can think of *several* situations
where this would have complications, but unless you *really* want to
hear them, I'll spare the details (because I *really* don't want to
type it all out).

...and yet the same or similar problems keep occurring.  That's
ultimately my point - I don't know what it is, but *something* you're
doing is causing these problems.
