I've seen the same behavior, I don't recall if it came along with the
switch to 64-bit (but it's possible), or to some particular version of
X. If I'm not wrong, setting the following in the InputDevice section
corresponding to the keyboard in /etc/X11/XF86Config solved the problem
for me:
        Option          "XkbOptions"    "compose:rwin,altwin:super_win"
