!@#$@! I was reading from the wrong variable.  My apologies.  I really
 did mean to give you something that would work.

I have fixed the wrong variable problem and I also spotted another
architecture test in crashdump-x86e that would only work on i386, and
fixed that.

The new version is up at:

So if you want to live on the bleeding edge and see if I have fixed
all of my thinkos you can test that.

I hope this gets the weird biarch software architecture right finally.
