[R] MAC OSX vs Win XP: Different stats test results!

Hi all,
I wondered whether anyone has some advice on a stats-related 'sanity check',
as I ran a nonparametric multivariate test (mulrank function as decribed by
R. Wilcox, 2005) on both systems, but got different results (please see
below for the system-specific outputs)! The functions I used are attached as
well. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance for getting
back to me!

Best wishes,
Mareen
