problem with IDL statistics

In my code I have the line:
result=randomu(seed, binomial=[3.8e7, .72])
this freezes up the code (acts as if it is in an infinite loop) at the
statement above.
If i change the 3.8e7 to 3.9e7, it works fine.
It seems that certain ranges of values work and others don't.
It doesn't matter if I use integers, long integers, double
I get the exact same problem when I use other similar statements, such
result=randomn(seed, 256,256,poisson=3.8e7)
again it freezes up for 3.8e7 but not 3.9e7
Very strange!
Any comments?
