We are getting very occasional reports of integer division by zero errors in PuTTYgen.

SGT, 2003-06-28: Believed fixed. Thankfully, the bug was not in the bignum implementation (although I found a small bug in there too in the course of fixing it!) but in the much simpler prime-generation code that called it.
