Bug in Plot?

I recently upgraded to v 6.0.2.  A plotting program I wrote years ago 
which has worked on many previous versions suddenly broke.  I seem to 
have isolated the following problem:

For me, this command produces a simple plot:

a = 0.25; Plot[1 - Exp[-a * t], {t, 0, 10}]

As does this:

a = 0.25; Plot[1 - Exp[-a * t], {t, 0.5, 10}]

As does this:

a = 0.0025; Plot[1 - Exp[-a * t], {t, 0, 1000}]

But this causes Mathematica on my machine to hang indefinitely:

a = 0.0025; Plot[1 - Exp[-a * t], {t, 50, 1000}]

I have to quit and re-start the kernel to recover.

Can anyone reproduce this behavior?  If so, can anyone suggest why this 
happens, or suggest a work around?  Thanks is advance for all help with 
this.
