[Paraview] 64 Bit binaries?

We compiled Paraview on a dual opteron on a SuSE Linux 9.1 x86_64 as 
well. It compiles and runs fine when compiled in 32 bit mode (-m32) but 
we had to dig around in the makefiles to compile/link 64 bit (-m64) and 
then it coredumps somewhere in tcl. So did you manage to make it run in 
64 bit mode?



(Traceback gives:

(gdb) where
