I *think* what is happening is that /Seed and /Secure refinements are in
effect mutually exclusive options. I start random sequences simply by doing
the 100 here isn't a seed it's the range (maximum value of the result). If
Then I get no value returned, but a seed value is set internally.
The on line help on random is obscure as it does not distinguish the two
possible meanings of the number
As far as I can tell there is no need to (or point in) setting a seed when
using /secure. But don't take that as definitive: the Core 2.5 manual fails
to mention Random/secure
