No, you're exactly right.

Have you tried building Swish-e with 64-bit file support on your 32-bit
system?  I'd be very curious to know if the database is portable between
32 and 64 bit systems in that way.

Enable 64-bit file support:
  ./configure CPPFLAGS='-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64'


Of course, if your 64-bit system is AMD Hammer compatible (Athlon 64
[and Intel Xeon 64-bit?]) then you can run a 32-bit Swish-e.  Obviously,
you have all the usual 32-bit limitations if you do that.
