Keep in mind, you're going to run into other issues like this with
firefox, flash and other applications. Some people solve it by running
32bit libs/apps along with 64bit, and others solve it by installing
the 32bit distro on x86_64 hardware.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
