Two reasons:

1) The GWR adaptive proportion to include is stated to be about 23
observations of 50, the R one was about 19.

2) You were using the arguments in gwr() wrongly. When doing adaptive GWR,
you should pass the output of gwr.sel() through the adapt= argument, and
adapt=(23/50), you get results much more like GWR3 - for 23/50 agreeing
pretty closely.

Hope this helps,

Roger
