Package: boinc-client
Version: 5.4.11-4
Severity: normal

I'm running boinc-client on my amd64 machine, and here's what happens
when I start it and try to attach to a project that does support
natively the x86_64 platform:

2007-01-18 16:56:28 [---] Starting BOINC client version 5.4.11 for

2007-01-18 16:59:21 [boincsimap] Message from server: platform '' not found

I tried with various projects, they never get the 'x86_64-pc-linux-gnu'
platform string that they should get from the client, and thus do not
download client app or work units.
