As suggested, this is probably a 32-bit versus 64-bit problem.  You can 
use the (alpha?) 64-bit image included with VW7.6 (look in the "preview" 
directory).  I have a student hosting a VW app on slicehost and I know 
he struggled with this a bit.  I think in the end he deployed his 
application as parcels from his development image (on a 32 bit machine), 
and loads the parcels into the 64bit image through the -pcl command line 
option at server startup.  He hasn't had any problems as far as I know.
