Hmmm...the PostgreSQL binaries on my Solaris/sparc box are 32-bit
and the FreeBSD box is a 32-bit i386, yet both are susceptible to
the crash.  On both boxes, a 32-bit program shows both sizeof(void *)
and sizeof(int) to be 4, so the problem doesn't appear to be due
to that necessary condition not being satisfied.
