 This is an old problem, that now pops up regularly as we are having new
updates on a continuous basis, a re-think is in order it seems...

I've just rebuilt my library files that have the new -x64- x32 in the name

I noticed this as well (as soon as PD merged the relevant PR), but thought
it would go away (get fixed on the way), so I did not report it (it would
probably also just generate a response saying: file PR, write docs and add
tests). Auto-linking (windows) is broken (and links to the lib-name without
the x32/x64).
