I have not had problems with tape coming loose.  I think as long as there is a fair amount of xylene dispensed onto the slide, the tape will adhere properly.  Cytology preparations can be a problem, if smears are thick and chunky they will not coverslip properly.  One interesting problem I encountered was the presence of an occasional diffuse black granular precipitate on the slides.  It turned out to be pencil lead granules that had floated down to the section area of the slide.  I would recommend the instrument.  The tape is easily removed, if necessary, by immersing the slide in acetone for 5 minutes.
