looking at changeset 6472, it looks like there are two possible errors
using logcdf instead of cdf
and switching to the internal method (underline) which might not do
correct bounds handling (but I'm not sure about the latter)

4289	 	        return invnorm.cdf(x,1,0)
 	4291	        return invnorm._logcdf(x, 1.0)

reverting this line, I guess, fixes it

I think here the arguments need to be reversed

res = distfunc.rvs(size=200, *args)
