Normally, they should output the same result.

If they don't output the same result, it could means that:
1) There is a bug
2) The input format of the input file might be incorrect. Some algorithms assumes that each line (transaction) is sorted by lexical order and that an item does not appear twice in the same line. If this is not followed then some unexpected result may happen.

If you send me your file by e-mail (philippe.fv AT, I can check it to see what happens.
