Surprised that no one has replied to this so I'll just offer a bit of advice. Whilst on the surface your assumption is correct, 64bit will allow more accuracy than 32 bit, what you need to be aware of is the same gotchas still apply to 64 bit LC as 32 bit LC. Try this in the msg box: put

What I should have added: If you set a font for your stack, does that fix the problem, i.e. you still leave the font setting for Menus and Fields empty. If not, if you specify a font for your Menus and Fields does that fix the problem? Obviously you have to choose a font you know has Umlaut etc.
