ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Windows XP 64-Bit
Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790]


EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
there should be more than 4G of RAM

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Such properties of com.sun.management.OperatingSystemMXBean as
  TotalSwapSpaceSize
FreeSwapSpaceSize
  TotalPhysicalMemorySize
FreePhysicalMemorySize
have incorrect values (namely 4294967295 = 0xffffffff) when there is 32bit jre and there are more than 4G of RAM.
Note: 64bit jre shows correct values.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
something like
  TotalSwapSpaceSize         364c45000
FreeSwapSpaceSize          2e28f6000
  TotalPhysicalMemorySize    1ffecf000
FreePhysicalMemorySize     168295000

ACTUAL -
  TotalSwapSpaceSize         ffffffff
FreeSwapSpaceSize          ffffffff
  TotalPhysicalMemorySize    ffffffff
FreePhysicalMemorySize     ffffffff


REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
import java.lang.management.ManagementFactory;

		System.out.println("TotalSwapSpaceSize         " + Long.toHexString(bean.getTotalSwapSpaceSize()));
		System.out.println("FreeSwapSpaceSize          " + Long.toHexString(bean.getFreeSwapSpaceSize()));
		System.out.println("TotalPhysicalMemorySize    " + Long.toHexString(bean.getTotalPhysicalMemorySize()));
