Any known issues running JDK1.5_17(32 bit JVM) on Windows 64 bit OS?

This is very much related to another post I already have outstanding- but it seemed like a valid separate question....

Does jdk1.5_17 (32 bit JVM) run on Windows 64 bit OS without any known issues? Specifically class loading?  Anything unique settings required, etc.?

We're running it and having some intermittent problems that other sites using the same application are not having- only difference we can think of is they are all 32-bit, where-as we are 64 bit servers.

We found instances of this error buried in the logs...related to class load failures

The JVM is working fine. It's the application you're trying to load that seems to be missing some classes.
This isn't a JVM crash, it's a ClassNotFoundException of an application-specific class.

We have not solved this issue - but I have not found any reported issues (to answer my question), so I will close with that answer acceptance.
