Note that, even in Lua 5.3, math.randomseed(os.clock()) does not raise
an error, but it probably does not do what you want. If you call that in
the beginning of the program, 'os.clock()' will return a small fraction
that will always be rounded to zero, so that math.random produces the
same numbers at every run.
