This is probably hitting the RNG really hard but doesn't explain/excuse the exception.

No as there shouldn't any exception when doing so.
Could you fill a bug @ bugzilla.ximian.com and supply
(a) the version of mono you're using (mono --version);
(b) the OS you're using (uname -a);
(c) some sample code (as small as possible);
(d) the full stack trace of the exception;

Ok, so I won't say it ;-)
