That gives equivalent result as replacing the compact nested reference 
of the array element with the several simple references, i.e. 'score' 
cumulates non-zero values but the program still behaves very differently 
on 64-bit relative to the normal 32-bit situation.

Well, it would be a good idea to implement it eventually if my word counts.

What is the trick then? When I install it from the RPM the two 
installation will overwrite each other.
