In another words: the default TeXk with default configuration file is not
TRIP compatible. It is out of my interrest that the TeXk binary is able to
be TRIP compatible by some special configuration file and some special
operation environment when the default configuration is not TRIP
compatible. This was not the reason of TRIP test.

It is your intend to make TeXk with default configuration file TRIP
incompatible? Why?

Yes it is acceptable, but why _the same_ operating system, _the same_ TeX
distribution (web2c only in different versions) has these differences?

Yes, it is acceptable, but the two pages lost by TeXk (14 pages versus 16
pages) are not acceptable.
