The code fragment is too small to evaluate fairly.  If you can submit
a small program that demonstrates the problem, maybe we can find the
error.  Note that there are no significant differences between a
program compiled for DJGPP and one compiled for UNIX when I/O is
excluded.  It is the compiler that makes a difference in loops and
optimization.  Is you UNIX compiler GNU CC?
