Well, after my patch, it creates 500.000 as well, no errors. 
I had to modify your algoritm a bit to make it more efficient,
and I'm too lazy to wait for 5 million. 

So I guess the bug is fixed. It's merged to the fixbranch.

If you want to use your own GUID creation routine, you can
always set the OnCreateGUID handler in sysutils.
