> MersenneTwister.setSeed(int seed) has a bug.
> If seed is negative, longMT also becomes negative.
> First 32 bits are filled by 0xFFFFFFFF.
> But it should be positive. First 32 bits should be filled by 0x00000000.
> Ex) Integer -1 is 0xffffffff. 
> Long -1 is 0xffffffffffffffff.
> Long 0xffffffff is 4294967295.
> I created simple patch.
