Sorry - just read this properly. I got exactly the same problem using 
x64 and one of Will's much earlier versions of unicode-math, but since I 
have access to quite a number of machines with identical TeX installs, I 
established that this was just an issue for x64, and not for x86 with 
identical sources. In fact, I posted to this list about is on 02/10/09 
but no answer was found.

Given that the symptoms sound identical, could the problems also be?

I don't recall whether this was a problem or not, so can't guarantee a 
complete symptom match - sorry.

Hope that helps,
