I think we have a possible solution: Making size_t/ptrdiff_t always 64 bit makes the same offset_ptr work fine in both environments, and solves similar problems in rb_tree_best_fit as well. We have a prototype working.
Can we template the size_t/ptrdiff_t size into offset_ptr? For example:
template <class PointedType, class DifferenceType=ptrdiff_t> class offset_ptr;
Then all other classes could derive their size_types and difference_types from their pointer type as unsigned/signed std::iterator_traits<pointer_type>::difference_type. Is that ok with you?
