Thanks for your report! Fixed in the latest release, 2.6.10.

(random integer) should return a random integer from 0..integer-1 but experiments suggest that only the first 31 significant bits are random, the rest are 0's.

(format t "~b~%" (random (expt 2 75)))

GCL 2.6.6 / Fedora 1 / Athlon MP (x86)
