Perhaps you are converting UUIDs to String representation (36 ascii
chars == 36 bytes), instead of binary (byte[16])? JUG can give out
both, it's a rather simple lib (and yes, that JDK variant only dishes
out random number based ones is bizarre, but partly since Ethernet
address was only recently exposed in JDK 1.6 or so)
