Neither me. But PaX tend to be less harmfull than it appear. The paxtest 
programmer (I don't remember his name by now) admits that when he put the PaX 
on the first time on his Debian, he becmoes doubtfull it really functions 
beacause everything was nice, so he creates the software to test. Aside 64 
bits system has more bugs than 32, it could be a good candidate to not have 
throubles (except when you mix it with Xen, nasty thing).
