While the external inputs may be the same, the internal state of the software will be different. While the inputs to the system are not changed the full set of software inputs are different. From the user perspective it may appear to be doing different things for the same input values, however for a specific state of the software machine, which includes external inputs and internal state variables, the software will always do the same thing.
