Sorry, I didn't realize that 2.0.0 actually came with a 64bit binary included or that the choice would show up under 10.5. This definitely sounds like good advice since 10.5 can't run 64bit code. You'd think the OS would always default to 32bit unless it can handle 64bit. This would certainly make it clear why it worked on my PowerBook (PPC) 10.5 system.

Please let us know if this helps.

Good Luck,
