That doesn't make sense, unless I'm misinterpreting what you are saying. Primes
aren't that common, are they?

I don't have time right now to look for a bug in your code, but you could add a
sanity check that would catch a bug immediately by adding in the appropriate
spot a test like

 if (!curnum.isProbablePrime(128))
   System.out.println("Something wrong, number is not really a prime!");


to check that your primality test gets the same result as the M-R primality
test that comes with BigInteger.
