Inconsistent behavior of heat transfer on different platforms

Sorry, English is not my native language.

I discovered inconsistent behavior of Cell-Cell Heat Transfer on different platforms.

on Windows used minimal thermal conductivity

on Linux used average thermal conductivity

I also can't check it on OSX

just little experiment, starting conditions:

2 block of Sandstone 1000 kg 500C

1 block of Copper Ore 1000 kg 0C

1 block of Refined Copper 1000 kg 0C

on Windows:

After a few seconds. It is clearly seen that Refined Copper and Copper Ore are heated at almost the same rate. Obviously, the minimum thermal conductivity is used.

After a few seconds. It is clearly visible that Refined Copper heats up more than three times faster than Copper Ore. obviously, the average thermal conductivity is used.
