Package: boinc-client
Version: 5.10.8-1
Severity: important

Just upgraded my amd64 system running lenny.  I noted that the boinc-client 
changelog said that i686-pc-linux-gnu is now automatically used as an 
alternative platform name and so the previous mechanisms for pretending
to be a x86_64-pc-linux-gnu platform have been removed.

However, it doesn't work.  climateprediction.net is refusing to send me any
tasks with message from server: platform 'x86_64-pc-linux-gnu' not found.
