Comment (by pram):

 Replying to [comment:1 rcurtin]:
 > Use `math::RandomSeed(seed)` to set the seed.  The reason srand()
 doesn't work is because the Random() functions use the Boost random number
 library, which is "immune" to srand, instead preferring its own seeding
 > Documentation
 here] (even though it's formatted all weird and colored all wrong... I'm
 working on that...).
