I just checked in this fix, which seems to fix the problem in my
testing. I moved the Nmap srand to be much earlier in the code to
reduce the chances of it clobbering other srand() calls, and I also
made it unique from the srand() call used by nbase. Thanks to Jah and
Brandon for your help.
Hmm, I don't think we're out of the woods yet. I think we're hitting
a very short cycle problem of Visual Studio's rand LCG that won't show
up using GCC on Linux.
We may need to use rand_s() on Windows.
I just sent a follow up note to your previous one. I don't have a
Windows dev box or I'd help test this.
