Yes indeed, these are all 32 bit OSs.

I'm not sure if I conveyed the impression that the scripts work on 10.04.
What I meant was that the scripts work on 11.10, but auctex gives the
arithmetic range error (which you've explained above).

On 10.04, neither works. I'm waiting for 12.04 which is due in a few
days now, and will upgrade then. I'll also be installing the 64-bit
version on a new machine, so I can try this out on a 64-bit OS.

Thanks very much for addressing this so promptly (and generally making
the world go around :-).
