I read somewhere that the LTZ1000 chip is mounted in a special way
to reduce thermal conductivity.  That would sort of indicate some
kind of edge mount with the chip floating, and that again would
certainly expose it to gravitational effects.

In that case, it should only have three modes: up, down and sideways,
where the chip is vertical, but the rotation around the center
axis should have very little effect.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
