Well. I now have SUSE 9.3 32 bit version running in a separate partition. I 
didn't really want to try Kubuntu64 versus SUSE 9.3 64 at this time.

Now I have working Live TV, I can play back recordings, I have VBI data again, 
basically: Everything is working as expected.

I wonder how much of this is down to issues/oversights in glibc and the like? 
Of course there may be problems with the 64-bit version of my soundcards 
driver - that could be. Both are running alsa 1.0.9....

Now to see if I can also transcode shows. That nearly always failed in the 
64-bit state, but succeeded at least once, strangely enough...
