select into outfile works in 32bit, not in 64bit

I'm hoping someone else has run into this problem and found a solution. I've inherited a number of MySQL 5.1.x installations on various servers, and a bunch of code that moves data to a central server by dumping and loading text files. I've moved 2 servers to 64bit installations of MySQL, and now the code that used to work does not. Here is an example statement:

select * from mytable into outfile '\\\\myfilesvr\\share\\myoutfile.sql' FIELDS ESCAPED BY '\N';

This command works on the 32bit installations, but fails on the 64bit installations with the following error:

MySQL Database Error: Field separator argument is not what is expected; check the manual

I've checked configuration settings between them, but there doesn't seem to be anything significantly different other than file/buffer sizes and the like. Running the statement also creates the file in the appropriate location, however the file is empty, so this is not an access/permission issue with the target file.

Any insight would be appreciated.
