Are you decoding the same bitstream for comparison?
The number of times III_imdct_l() is called depends on the signal being
decoded. It may not be called at all in the case of short blocks, or it
may be called only a few times, or several. It varies with the
complexity of the signal.
If you are using the same bitstream, is the decoded output identical?
