[R] hclust, does order of data matter?

I am using the hclust function to cluster some data.  I have two separate
files with the same data.  The only difference is the order of the data in
the file.  For some reason, when I run the two files through the hclust
function, I get two completely different results.

Does anyone know why this is happening?  Does the order of the data matter?
