You were faster than me. I just thought about starting after lunch.

Unfortunately, your patch gives me a SIGBUS on HP-UX 10.20 at:
	SOCK_AF_INET(addr).sin_addr.s_addr = htonl(INADDR_LOOPBACK);

I'll see to unwrap the macro and try some debugging.

Best regards,
PS. There is a minor inconsistency in get get_random_bytes and seed_rng
(unsigned char <-> char).
