It's highly unlikely to be related to pdftex or window/linux
miktex/texlive differences, but to changes in the format or
packages used (the linux tex distribution used is quite old)

you can add \listfiles and compare package versions as listed in the
log, but without a reproducible test case not a lot else can suggest.
