My 2006 Boxer sliding door is operating perfectly but can anyone tell me if it should latch in the open position so that it doesn't close itself when parked on a slope? I know my old '92 van door latched open so I expected this later model to do the same.

It's possible that the nanny state known as the EU has passed safety regulations preventing the door being latched in the open position so the vehicle cannot be driven with an open door as they used to do back in the 'good old days' before seatbelts and other non essentials like abs and airbags :)

Excellent thinking! Although I think there is a greater possibilty of the door squishing me while loading the van on an incline than me or a passenger falling out while on the move :)

True but then the EU bureaucrats will think that every loading / unloading will take place in a level loading dock. I'm sure you'll agree with them that no-one would even consider loading or unloading on a slope :)

I've found out the door doesn't latch open because the release cable is frayed preventing it from returning to its resting position. If I disconnect the cable then the door latches open just fine - only I can't then close it again without using a screwdriver! So I've put the frayed cable back until I get around to buying a new cable (none on eBay :( )
