_ouch_

There's a bug, all right, but I'm not sure that this is all there is to it.
For now it's probably the right fix, but...  Consider the fun trying to
use that from 32bit process to access the memory of 64bit one.  IOW, we
might want to add an explicit flag for "force 64bit addresses/sizes
in rvec".
