Some derailleurs and shifting systems (particularly indexed shifting systems) are sensitive to where the derailleur sits in relation to the cluster. That's one reason why many manufacturers have moved to using vertical dropouts.

Have you tried asking a bike shop if they have an axle stop you could put on the other side?
