Some apps install 64-bit and 32-bit versions for ABI compatibility and  
plugins (or IPC). Maybe the OP had a 32-bit gnome app installed?

Firefox is a perfect example of this  (wish there were icons for both  
the 64-bit and 32-bit versions so one could choose which to launch).

With NetworkManager though one can only run one or the other. I  
believe the default for all dual arch installs is to run the 64-bit  
version if installed, otherwise the 32-bit version.
