In test_struct.py, please change this line (right after "class IntTester"):




and try again.  I suspect you're bumping into a pre-existing bug that simply
wasn't checked before (and, yes, there's A Reason it *may* screw up on a
64-bit box but not a 32-bit one).  Note that since in standard mode, "i" is
considered to be a 4-byte int regardless of platform, we really *should*
bitch about trying to pack -2147483649 under "i" (but we don't -- and in
general no codes except the new q/Q reliably bitch about out-of-range errors
in the standard modes).

Leaving that to some loser who cares about whitespace <wink>.
