I am using random for generating music play list. I have found that it
is not random enough. It keeps playing the same tracks.

I have even wrote a cache of recently played tracks so that it tries
harder. Obviously it's a band aid.

Yes I am just talking about "feeling" here. I don't know how to prove
that random does not work. Is it even possible?

On a side note are we using /dev/random?
