> Tests are configured to set the entropy source to {{file:///dev/urandom}} to prevent
blocking on machines with low entropy.  We've observed that on Windows, this will cause tests
to block for 5 seconds trying to access this non-existent path the first time the process
does something that needs entropy, such as using a {{SecureRandom}} or creating a {{UUID}}.
 This can cause tests to fail due to timeouts.  In addition to the initial 5-second blocking,
this causes the JVM to fall back to a slower, non-native seed generation implementation.
