.. the round function seems to get round it (excuse the pun):

> round(gamma(21)/(gamma(6)*gamma(16))) == round(choose(20,5))
[1] TRUE

So I presume the problem is related to gamma being a real function.
However, I'm still not sure why there's a break from TRUE to FALSE for
certain values.  Any comments would be appreciated!
