glib does have support for random numbers and provides random number API
(it might do something in its library with random numbers also).  glibmm
wraps the glib's random API but I still think that the bug would be
beneath the glibmm and gtkmm wrappers (in glib or gtk).  One good way to
be sure would be to write equivalent code in C and see if the same
happens there.
