There may be two reasons that only shows up on a certain platform:

a) as already lined out on IRC, for uninitialized variables allocated
   memory may have different content on different platforms.

b) if that's only with one compiler and code inspection does not reveal
   an uninitialized variable, sometimes compiler optimization may
   "overdo" a bit. In such cases it may help to declare an affected
   variable as volatile.
