I asked to type "file `which emacs`".  The `file' part is important.

That sounds like a bug: the decimal representation is like I'd expect
on a 64-bit machine, but the octal and hex representations are like on
a 32-bit machine.  Strange...

Perhaps this is some bug that was in Emacs 22.1.  Can you upgrade to
22.3?
