No, it's a standard 32 bit. (fresh install, 2007.0 )

I've seen that thread, too. Doesn't seem like there was a solution.

Thank you, but for now I'll try the powerpanel driver (as Arjen advised).
I'll let you know if things work out.

As an experiment, if I compile just the driver from 2.2.0-pre1 (with the required options),
can I expect it to work ? (assuming the problem was solved in this version)
