If it is the same package, it comes from casting a double to float by rounding. It is compiler dependent. This is fixed this in numarray cvs.

stats.randint.rvs(min, max) doesn't always do the right thing. Namely, 
it will occasionally give a number equal to max. Numeric's 
RandomArray.randint(min, max) doesn't seem to have this problem (or at 
least the sample size needed to show it is rather higher than that for 

Oddly enough, they seem to do the same computation. Any thoughts?
