That's known feature/bug, 5.0 vectors are not portable AFAIK
(if long int is 8 bytes I think?).
I would appreciate if you could test if 5.7 vectors are portable 32<->64
without problems, I have never had access to 64 machine.
Desirable is also to edit (v.digit) a vector created on one platform on another 
and then to read on both.
