Greetings! We are considering using gmp random numbers in GCL. I've
run across an infinite loop with a random base of, e.g. 18. Is this a
known issue (current Debian unstable gmp-4.1.4)? Right now we're
working around by putting a floor under the base of (1<<31)-1. I can
provide a more detailed report if useful, but am out of time right
If you think you have found a bug in GMP, you should follow
the instructions in the manual on how to report it.
It is always a good idea to assume bugs are unknown.
