There is no reason for having the 32-bit version on x64 Windows. Only
the shell extension dlls of the 32-bit version are installed
automatically, but that's all that's required.
And even that 32-bit dlls then start the x64 version of TortoiseSVN for
the UI stuff.

No, seriously: you do not want the 32-bit version installed on an x64
Windows version. You only get into trouble.
What you "can't have" apparently is an x64 version of your issue tracker
plugin, but that's not our fault.
