Ah, this would also explain David's problems with BeOS, probably. 
However, I am concerned that unused memory shouldn't be, err, used. I'm 
not sure about this, though, since using unused memory for random 
numbers is a rare case where its OK - and I don't have time to check the 
code right now, but I'm wondering if this is indicative of some deeper bug?

I'd be happier if the assignees were changed to the correct type.
