Ah, right.  I've been used to diagnosing this for "input stack size
exceeded" in TeX (very popular is naming a LaTeX file pstricks.tex in
order to make the first experiments with PStricks, then use
\usepackage{pstricks} which includes pstricks.sty which unfortunately
behind the scenes does \input pstricks.tex which should normally load
the original plain TeX file from deep within the directory search path,
but prefers loading the user file instead...).

But the "64bit" red herring distracted me.
