less and therefore this question is not related to GNU coreutils,
but this is the mailing list of GNU coreutils.

I can't tell for Mandriva, but for openSUSE you're better off
asking on one of their mailing lists, or where less' RPM package
tells you:

  $ rpm -qi $( rpm -qf $( which less )) | grep http
  Packager    :
  URL         :

Or where the documentation of less points you:

    Mark Nudelman <address@hidden>
    Send bug reports or comments to the above address or
    to  address@hidden.
    See for the
    latest list of known bugs in less.
    For more information, see the less homepage at

My personal guess is that one of the 2 distributions has added
some patches on top of the upstream less version which makes the
difference (if you refer to the same version at all ...).

Have a nice day,
