Comment (by josefpktd):

 I now compared the numpy c version with "Kemp's second accelerated
 generator" in Devroye p.548 downloaded from http://www.nrbook.com/devroye/
 and I don't see any difference, comparing all the conditioning it looks to
 me exactly the same as the algorithm in Devroye.

 So, my previous comment does not seem to be relevant. So, I have no idea
 what's causing the difference in sampling frequency convergence.
