[Numpy-discussion] OverflowError when importing RandomArray

I am using Numeric 0.23 with Python 2.2 on my Gentoo Linux box. Problem:

>>> from Numeric import *
>>> import RandomArray
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/Numeric/RandomArray.py", line
30, in ?
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/Numeric/RandomArray.py", line
26, in seed
    x = int(t/base)
OverflowError: float too large to convert

Is this a bug, a misconfiguration on my system or a misusage on my part?
Opinions, anyone?
