Thinking that stuff a bit further: I'd guess that an app usually knows when
to use SSE2 and when not to use it (since it'd most likely crash the same
way on Windows if it was wrong!).
IOW, do we have an issue with some SystemInfo API indicating that we *have*
an SSE2 CPU here when we actually have not, and thus the program chooses to
switch to the improper code path?
No programming skills!? Why not help translate many Linux applications!
