Specifying a precision rather than using machine precision appears to
resolve the issue.

$Version

"8.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (October 5, 2011)"

Needs["NumericalDifferentialEquationAnalysis`"]

And @@ (
  Length[GaussianQuadratureWeights[#, 0, 1, 20]] == # & /@
   Range[150])

True

Even works when specifying a precision less than machine precision

And @@ (
  Length[GaussianQuadratureWeights[#, 0, 1, 10]] == # & /@
   Range[150])

True
