```I know that the subject of symbolic definite integration is very
difficult and sometimes the implementated algorithms fail to give the
desired results especially when the integrand contains branch cuts.

Although I do consider Mathematica as the best in this field among the
CAS I have worked isn't strange (at least!) that the same version of
Mathematica for different platforms give completely different results
(Mac->right vs Win->false)?
