  Uhm, OK, from looking at the code it looks like it really needs to be
that random.  :-)

  But still, I have seen there is a patch on the trunk to avoid opening
/dev/urandom at every genrand() invocation.  I don't have the time to
check if it makes a difference, but /cvs/ORBit/docs/changes2.txt seems
to imply it does.  Can we port it back to the orbit-stable-0-5 branch?
