Hi Rob,

We haven't done a port to Snow Leopard yet, and certainly not a 64-
bit port.

I'm not sure where you got this 5.1.1 version, but it may have been
compiled under Leopard under 32-bit, and I can't make any guarantees
about whether this should work under SL.

Another user is going to attempt a native build of 5.1.1 under Snow
Leopard and I'll see if we can make that available when it's done.
