Re: attention 64 bit Mathematica users - would you please test a command for me?

In[1]:=$Version
Out[1]=5.2 for Linux x86 (64 bit) (June 20, 2005)
In[2]:=a=Import["/usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.2/AddOns/Applications/GUIKit/GUI/\
Box.xml"]

LinkOpen::linke: MathLink error: the launch failed because the program
could \
not be found

Note: when I copied the output, the Mathematica Messages box popped up,
saying "Mathematica has detected a possible internal error. If
possible, report the error to support at wolfram.com, quoting "Assertion
'iLeftQuote == -1' failed at lex.c:2617", and describe in as much
detail as possible what you were doing when the error occurred."

(I will send an email to support)
