LSM303AGR self test always fails

Hello, I'm using an LSM303AGR thru I2C, and after a little struggling, everythings looks fine. I can read any of the 6 axes with what seems to be the right values, and the read values react correctly when I tild my board.

So, why am I always getting a failure when executing the self-test procedure given in the datasheet ? I notice that the kind of failure depends on the tilt of the PCB: I sometimes gets a fail with the magnetometer, and other times I gets a fail with the accelerometer: the read values doesn't comply with the expected range...

Any idea, anyone ?

Thanks!
