This may not be 100% of your issue, but I cant say that with certainty
that the states of the various timing recovery are initialized or zeroed
at constructor time. So different runs or different OSs could yield with
different results.

Now, the real issue is there is no framing or frame recovery blocks in
this flow graph. So the recovery side doesn't know what symbol starts a
byte, so you could have bits sliding across byte boundaries in the
unpacked to packed, even in this simple example.
