Heh.  Don't try that script on a production box, kids (or at least, not in prime
$ uptime
 7:42pm  up 19 min(s),  3 users,  load average: 54.55, 28.04, 14.86

Anyway, I can reproduce it on Solaris 2.5.1.  Here's the tail of a failing log:

debug3: Got 0.00 bytes of entropy from 'tail -200 /var/adm/messages'
debug1: Seeded RNG with 4 bytes from programs
debug1: writing PRNG seed to file /home/dtucker/.ssh/prng_seed
PRNG seed extraction failed

Will test patch #760 next.
