Thank you for your report.
This is not a bug. The difference appears due to huge coefficients
in some constraints, for example:
R0001162: + C0000011 + 4294967295 C0000140 + C0000516 - C0000527
Most probably such huge coefficients introduce excessive round-off
errors during the preprocessing phase. Note that the successful
solution of your instance with the standard b&b was a happy chance.
The "big M" method is not a good modeling technique, because it makes
the problem too hard to be solved in floating-point arithmetic.
