Maybe it _sometimes_ works?  Today on my machine I see the same problem
as Pascal Costanza.  After setting time back one day (random 100)
crashed but I was able to do

(random (expt 2 10000))

After setting time to correct value the above crashes.  As far as
I remember the testcase I reported worked yesterday using version
I pulled from git.  Today the same version has problem...
