I get problems when I try to use sidenotes in an mdframed environment:

\documentclass{tufte-book}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{mdframed}
\newtheorem{mdtheorem}{Theorem}
\newenvironment{theorem}%
{\begin{mdframed}[backgroundcolor=lightgray]\begin{mdtheorem}}%
{\end{mdtheorem}\end{mdframed}}

\begin{document}

\begin{theorem}
test \sidenote{side note}
\end{theorem}

\end{document}

Any ideas how to get around this issue?

The command \sidenote is equal to \marginpar or \marginnote which are not allowed in tables or boxes. So you can't use them.

The UK FAQ describes this error: ! LaTeX Error: Float(s) lost.
