This 32->64bit commentary issue was reported to BT long time ago. The  
file names are different in 32 and 64 bit platforms. Apparently they  
are generated by the engine using some algorithm which eventually  
depends on architecture. I asked about this in sword-devel but there  
was no answer. This will become more important when people gradually  
move to 64-bit systems.
