This seems strange. I have a small block of code that repeatedly calls rbinom. I put a break in there in case it returns NaN, as I've been having problems with this. Here is a transcript from the debug session:

Browse[1]> theP
[1] 1

Browse[1]> yleft[dataIndex]
[1] 3

Browse[1]> rbinom(1,3,1)
[1] 3

Browse[1]> rbinom(1,yleft[dataIndex], theP)
[1] NaN

Strange, huh?
