Do they have the same search_algorithm attribute setting? The same
endings database? The endings database is created by "htfuzzy endings",
and consists of word2root.db & root2word.db, which htfuzzy makes
from english.0 & english.aff by default. If you use different
endings_dictionary or endings_affix_file on these two systems, that
could account for the different results.
