Same difference on my MBA running OS X (10.8.2)

\$Version

"9.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (November 20, 2012)"

r1 = Expand[q1*p1*p2, Modulus -> m]

1651432217 + 309632549 n + 188919829 n^2 + 1597920481 n^3

\$Version

"8.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (October 5, 2011)"

r1 = Expand[q1*p1*p2, Modulus -> m]

1808010833 + 1914426603 n + 640234431 n^2 + 1087084730 n^3
