in reply to Prime Time for an Obfuscation

Did someone have trouble running it against this number: 1234567890123111? 5.8.8 on MSWin32

    It tries to create a list containing 2..sqrt(1234567890123111). So it starts to allocate 33.5M entries, taking a long time to spin as much RAM into place as it can, before it (I presume) dies (having caused way too much other stuff to swap out). Is that what you mean by "problem"? :)
