[ircd-ratbox] AMD64.

A bit more information pertaining to the AMD 64 issue; the server signals a
segmentation violation when attempting to send the private message.  The
private message never gets sent before the server dies.

Still no gdb output since apartment gdb does not compile on the AMD 64 chip.
Does anybody know any gdb alternatives that work on the AMD 64 chip?

AndroSyn has commited a fix for this to the RATBOX_1 branch, can you use 
the current cvs version of 1.x for me and see if these issues are fixed?
