Bug Description

Binary package hint: tworld

With this program (TileWorld - game like "Chip's Challenge"), the X86-64 variant does not recognize
its own save files:

    /home/cg/.tworld/intro-lynx.dac.tws: not a valid solution file

The X86 version works fine.

I'm running uptodate Hardy, kernel 2.6.24-22-generic, on an AMD Athlon X2

I'll see if I can report this to the program's author - it has a website.
