Oh. I read about a weakness of XP's random number generator a while ago from
a crypto point of view but that's just silly. On my own XP laptop I just got
the same results.

On a whim I also tried Std.rand2 instead of Math.rand2 and got the same.

This isn't so nice, to put it politely.
I'm also kicking myself for never hearing it.
