I wondered what changed?

Anyway, this has been a recurring problem.  If you can ship us a few
Opteron machines this could likely be fixed quickly.

What I think is happening is swish is reading and writing different
sized elements in error on that platform.

If shipping a few machines out - at least one to California and one to
Madrid ;) -- then you might try enabling debugging of properties.  You
can either set DEBUG_PROP in db_native.c or via flags on the
/configure line.  That "should" show you how and (more importantly)
where properties are written and then check if they are read back from
the same locations or (as I kind of suspect) off by one or two bytes.

That make any sense?
