This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

(random t) always returns the same number when I call it
right after starting emacs -q. According to the docu this call should set a
random seed from the current time and pid.
It works fine on my Linux PC, but under HP-UX 10.20 I always get the same
number.

(I've already posted this for emacs 20.7 in January 2001)
