The "Linux/i386/Ubuntu Precise" installer is 64 bits, which is wrong.

I get the following error when runing the TR tests:

place-channel-put: value not allowed in a message
  value: '#:methods

Is 733907474190da499a1782b230086170c5b87643 missing from the release?

Now running the tests without places.
