[Bug-gnubg] non-random seeding

Hello, all interested parties,

     It is sometimes advantageous to roll out the same position on
multiple computers to speed up the attainment of results.  I've
noticed (unfortunately after the fact) that when I set up the position
on different computers I end up with the *same* 10 digit seed.  In
the case that occurred, the seed was:  2032818304 on three computers.
I'm currently running the build of 040712 but I'm pretty sure the
rollouts were begun on builds dated 040405.

     I start GNU-bg, begin a new game, then edit the
position, setting score, cube-location, checker positions.  I then
use the <hint> button to evaluate @World Class, adjust the rollout 
parameters, and start the rollout from the <hint> window.

     If this isn't a bug, then can you add a 'random seed' box which
can be checkmarked in the rollout settings window?

      Thanks for all your hard work.
