--- Comment #6 from vegard.nospam@gmail.com ---
I can confirm this issue on a clean SLES 11SP2 64-bit, with
apache2-2.2.12-1.28.1.

Without the lines:

SSLRandomSeed startup file:/dev/urandom  256
SSLRandomSeed connect builtin

in the apache config, the error log reports the following: 
[info] Init: Seeding PRNG with 0 bytes of entropy

System info: 
uname -a:
Linux test-host-name 3.0.13-0.27-default #1 SMP Wed Feb 15 13:33:49 UTC 2012
(d73692b) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

cat /etc/SuSE-release:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11
PATCHLEVEL = 2

modssl-version from Apache error_log:
mod_ssl/2.2.12 compiled against Server: Apache/2.2.12, Library: OpenSSL/0.9.8h

/dev/urandom is present on this host:
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 9 Apr 10 11:44 /dev/urandom

(When the two lines first mentioned are present in the config, PRNG is behaving
as one should expect, with entropy =! 0)

Regards,
Vegard Fremstad
