Why would anything like that happen? Sounds quite weird to me. Programs that run on a 64 bit processor uses likely the same amount of RAM as on any other platform. It only means that addresses can be specified in a wider range at once and floating point operations can be more precise or things like that. Besides I am using an AMD64 and havent encounter any such trouble as these except black window bug and it doesnt seem to be more dramatic than on 32 bit.
