Huh? My ancient wet ram memory is probably out to lunch, but ISTR reading 
about someone else with the same problem at least a year ago on this 
list, unfortunately I have a 90 day expiry setup on this list so 
searching is just an exercise. My email corpus is nearly 20 gigabytes 
now.

pip has been around since it seems forever, but I would have thought by 
now it would have been rebuilt for 64 bit systems.  And that leads to a 
question, where did you get it?, and how long ago?  Maybe its an old 
version?  Head scratcher for sure.

What you see in the terminal screen you ran it in. It should a press the 
left mouse button and wipe the mouse from beginning to end so its all 
highlighted, then position the curser in an email and press the middle 
mouse button, which should copy the highlighted text into the email.
