Shapefile won't allow long integer with precision >5

Suddenly I am unable to create a long integer field with precision greater than 5.  I've tried multiple times, and sometimes when I'm in ArcCatalog it will show 8 as the precision, but when I open in ArcMap, it shows 5 (and allows only 5 when I try to enter more).  Any ideas?  (I'm using shapefiles instead of a geodatabase because my employer requires it.)  Thanks!
