Well, since one platform was R 3.2.1 and the other was R-devel, it might just be worth checking the NEWS.Rd file for items like

     \item \code{match(x, table)} is faster, sometimes by an order of
      magnitude, when \code{x} is of length one and \code{incomparables}
      is unchanged, thanks to Haverty's \PR{16491}.
