Okay, I took a look at the hexdump of these files.  MucousTransfers.py
has a large constant in it, 4294967295.  On x86_64, this is being byte
compiled to a 64 bit integer type.  On i86, this is being compiled to a
python long decimal type.  This is apparently a difference between the
two interpreters that no one has noticed before but the byte code is
usable between the two.

On x86_64, running the i86 byte code results in python using a long
decimal type instead of the slightly more efficient long int.

On i86, running the x86_64 byte code results in python having to convert
the 64 bit int to a long decimal when it loads it.

Both run afterwards, though.
