I've been using 64bit since 8.10. No problems whatsoever. And i do nothing special. I've always wondered how people stumble upon such "problems", but hey, i guess you can't help everyone.

It's funny that I had just the opposite experience on 9.04. I
accidentally installed the 64bit version and things worked incredibly
well: network, Flash, Java, etc. It all just worked (to my surprise).
When I discovered my 'error' (and had been told by the list that there
was really no compelling reason to run 64) I stepped down to 32 and all
of a sudden things broke. Flash and my network didn't work, Java was
crappy, and I hated it.
Ultimately, I got everything working but I always wondered *why* I
experienced problems on the 32bit edition and not on 64. I'd have
though that 32bit software would be more stable since more people are
running 32bit systems.
On 10.40, I've experienced no problems with either one. Well, Flash
kinda borked but it was a quick fix.
