Unlikely, given that they're using "tcpdump", which, with the "-w" flag,
writes using standard I/O, and doesn't do "fflush()"es on a
packet-by-packet basis.

Assuming, as I suspect is the case, that they're using the same command
on the OSes in question (or using "tcpdump" on FreeBSD and "windump" on
Windows), that's also unlikely - it's just "{tcp,win}dump -w test.acp".
