This is correct, chuck is not yet supported in true 64-bit (on 64-bit 
chuck can run in 32-bit mode if available but that's it).

There are some provisions in the code for 64-bit compatibility, but I am
quite certain they aren't enough.  We very much hope to support 64-bit
platforms as well, and have it on the TODO list.

Thanks for the stack trace.  You are right on, the main problems have 
to do
with pointer/'int size assumptions (in the emitter and vm 
instructions).  Most of
them might be straightforward to fix - but requires a good deal of 

At any rate, we definitely hope to resolve the 64-bit issue.

I think chuck _is_ the bug!
