in thread Predictable random sequence

I'm looking at the code on CPAN and comparing it with my local copy and it has barely changed, and as far as I can tell there is no platform dependence that would explain why the OP is getting different results.

In fact, beyond a single typedef and the name of a header file, I see no platform dependency at all.

Quite how the OP gets the output he posted is beyond my understanding.

    I think this is clearly just a bug, fixed in this version: diff (see changelog and code).
