Im on a 64bit box, but running opensim with 32 launcher. We test recompiling ode on 64 and running opensim on 64 as well but if we make the capsule smaller than 0.30 weird things start to happen. 

Animations can move the avatar image independantly of its physics representation. For examples see many dances where the avatar can dance around meters from it's capsule. This is how hugs & kisses work in SL, the animations move the avatars closer together. Granted there is at least one free pair of kiss animations which fail to do this, but I have an ancient pair of hug animations which move the avatars very close together, almost too close.
