I think this is now fixed; I merged the changes into tupkgupdate64 from
tupkgupdate for now, rather than go for the clean solution.

This should get things up and running. I also just rebuilt the database
so it is current again.

Please post again if it does not do the trick. The diffs match, aside
from the 64-bit changes, so I'd be surprised if it didn't work.
