On one test, run semi-manually, I got "3" (dunno which unit) as the difference
on the "hello world" sample. Will mentioned floating-point and rounding errors.
I'd be curious to know more about when this difference comes from (since I
naively tend to agree with you that the typesetting should be fully
determinisitc), but I'm afraid I don't have the time and necessary background
(event the the time to acquire such a background) to invesitgate.
