I am experiencing the exact same problem. I have repeated this over 10 times on
two different machines with various hardware configurations in each.

You are most definitely replacing a i686 installation with i386 binaries.  Don't
do that.  If you'd have up2date update your machine this wouldn't happen.  If
you do it yourself you better know what you do.
