Arcpy Bug? loop error ..runs great for 899 iterations and then fails at the 900th

Before it breaks, my script does this in a loop:

for i in range (1, 2000):

if ID = i:

step 1: export one point whose ID = i, feature class to feature class
step 2: make polygon, 500 meter buffer around the point
step 3: clip a raster with the polygon from step 2
step 4: do a bunch of spatial analysis on the clipped raster
step 5: export a table with stats from step 4

The loop breaks at step 2 after the 900th iteration, which is just about 1/2 way to completion.

Here is the error message:
'File "C:\Programmer\ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\arcpy\arcpy\management.py", line 7692, in Clip
   raise e
arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: ERROR 000622: Failed to execute (Clip). Parameters are not valid.
ERROR 000628: Cannot set input into parameter rectangle.

The errors makes sense only because step 2 does not produce a polygon after the 900th time through the loop. Question is, why no polygon?

Thanks,
Eric
