Interactive Brokers paper account anomalies

Did anyone has experienced anomalies on IB paper trading acct? I recently had a 15 ticks slippage on 10 CL contracts on a sell stop order…one contract was correctly filled and the other nine contracts were filled at a 15 ticks difference…there was no high volatility at that moment and it happened twice.
IB support told me that this shouldn’t happen on a real acct except that during high volatility (i.e. major announcements, black swan events, etc.).
However, I was wondering about IB forward testing new strategies on a paper trading account. How one can trust the results?
