I have tried both examples. They have both a ')' too many at the end of line 2. After removing the ')' they both give the same result against a HP BL460C G7 ESXi 4.1U1 host.
Nyargh! I just tried these again. My original lines didn't have the ")". Still weird, I seem to only see this issue from my desktop PC, don't see the issue running in my Mac's Windows VM. Thanks for confirming that I'm crazy.
