Well, they both use 0.7.2 so I doubt that'll be fixed. Perhaps you could try community made 0.8.0 ports of the game. For example, this 0.8.0 port+mod of not pacman viewtopic.php?f=16&t=2942
If that one works, then it's a 0.7.2 issue, and personally I can't do much.
Also, get your system specifications, those would help narrow down the cause. if you're not sure how, see the red part here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=26
