1. These versions are outdated. Please try building GAWK 3.1.5
as supplied from the GNU servers.

2. It is generally a good idea to compare results from two
machines, but these machines should run different operating
systems and locale settings. Pentium 4 and Pentium M don't
differ that much when you use gawk.

3. Please boil down the example script to a minimum.

In between these versions, there were some changes in
regexp and locale handling. I am rather confident that
your problem will not appear in more recent versions
of gawk. If possible, try any recent Linux distribution.
These distributions are even more up-to-date because they
contain recent patches supplied by Arnold Robbins (Maintainer
of GNU Awk).
