But you do not know at which side ;-)

AFAIK, ConTeXt checks if things have changed and if they have, it runs
again. What it checks and how might be different between the versions.

Save output from both runs (one file for each OS) and send them to me?
I'll take it up with Hans Hagen (ConTeXt author). If the test file can be
shared with us for debugging purposes, share it with us.
