[gmx-users] Different system volumes from gromacs versions 3.2.1 and 3.3.1

I performed NPT simulations of few different systems using both gromacs
v3.2.1 and v3.3.1. I use exactly the same parameters, starting files,
topology files etc for both the versions. The systems are pure water system
(10684 water molecules) and a protein-water system. However, the average
volume of the system that I get is from the simulations is different for the
two versions. In case of pure water, gromacs v3.2.1 gives me a lower volume
(~311.497 nm^3) than v3.3.1 (~324.604 nm^3) and the difference is
significantly higher than the fluctuations in the volume. The pressure is
maintained at 1 bar and the temperature is maintained at 300 K using
Berendsen barostat and thermostat respectively. I was wondering if someone
could tell me why this happens? Has there been a modification in the
pressure virial calculation or something related to the same that leads to
