There are several "random" modes in rhythmbox, you might want to check
if you are using "shuffle" (sampling without replacement) or a true
random (sampling with replacement), you can check the play_order gconf


in the gconf-editor, the legal values are: "linear", "shuffle",
"random-equal-weights", "random-by-age", "random-by-rating".

AFAIK shuffle should not repeat any song within the same session.
