I get the following results for r1:
In[12]:= $Version
Out[12]= 8.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64bit) (October 5, 2011)
In[13]:= r1
Out[13]= 1087084730 n^3+640234431 n^2+1914426603 n+1808010833
and
In[12]:= $Version
Out[12]= 9.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64bit) (November 20, 2012)
In[13]:= r1
Out[13]= 1597920481 n^3+188919829 n^2+309632549 n+1651432217
