Good news. I'll soon release some new code to break all that ;-)

I don't feel very surprised about that to be honest. With no 64 bit  
machine to test on and no very strong interest in messing with it it  
would be very plausible that I didn't write them adequately for a  
real 64bit machine. The possibility of the 'baseOffset' coming into  
play leaps to my currently addled brain for example.
