Thanks for the hint, but this does not really solve the problem.
Of course there are plenty workarounds to get random numbers, even from
/dev/random - for example I could create a file that contains numbers
from /dev/random, or I could pass the seed as an argument (as you
suggested), or I could use the random() function, etc.
However, this does not really solve the problem that the semantics of
the fread() command is changed by the condor wrapper.
