Yes, I'm on i686 with PAE (16GB of RAM here) - it's specifically
mentioned in the corresponding bug report.

P.S. I know Linus doesn't condone PAE but I still find it more
preferrable than running a mixed environment with almost zero benefit in
regard to performance and quite obvious performance regressions related
to an increased number of libraries being loaded (i686 + x86_64) and
slightly bloated code which sometimes cannot fit in the CPU cache. Call
me old fashioned but I won't upgrade to x86_64 until most of the things
that I run locally are available for x86_64 and that won't happen any
time soon.
