Subject: Bug? Random.int max_int on AMD64 fails
On an AMD64, OCaml 3.08.03 raises an exception for the following code:

> src > uname -a
> Linux operator 2.6.10 #1 SMP Wed Feb 16 17:00:41 CET 2005 x86_64 
> GNU/Linux
>
> src > ocaml
>         Objective Caml version 3.08.3
>
> # Random.int max_int;;
> Exception: Invalid_argument "Random.int".
> #

The same code poses no problem on a 32-bit machine, like the PowerPC:

> : lindig; ocaml
>         Objective Caml version 3.08.0
>
> # Random.int max_int;;
> - : int = 819618234
> # ^D
> : lindig; uname -a
