I wonder if it works in other flavours?
Have you seen if there is a bug report for it yet?
Is anyone else running a different DE on a 32bit version?
I have a 32bit computer that I can look to see if it works if you like.
I have a Xubuntu live image from a few weeks ago, if you want me to test 
it there.
