i guess that your Lua's math.random() is not stock Lua's. if it were,
we should get the same numbers given the same seeds.
can other members try this and see if everybody gets exactly the same
random numbers? this is Kubuntu 9.04 x86_64 with Lua 5.1.4 default
Got a bunch of different numbers with Lua 5.1.4 on Cygwin 1.7 and
Lua 5.1.4 on MinGW.
Hard to believe it's a Lua problem...
