This bit of code fails at numb := 1024:
error: Cannot truncate this number
numb := 1024.
1 to: numb do: [:n||test| test:=(2 raisedTo: n) -1. (test isPrime)
ifTrue: [Transcript show: n; tab; show: test;cr]]
#isProbablyPrime fails with the same number.
numb := 1023.
works for both.

"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian Kernighan
