> I'm hitting this Jetty issue when running Solr's tests that spawn a Jetty:
>     http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JETTY-331
> It seems to be caused by this root cause:
>     http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=6202721
> Whereby, somehow, Jetty is trying to use cryptographically secure source of randomness
to seed seed its HashSessionIdManager.  My box doesn't have enough entropy so the read blocks
for sometimes 10s of seconds!
> If I forcefully symlink /dev/random -> /dev/urandom, that fixes the hang.  Likewise,
if I edit the JRE's java.security to  set securerandom.source=file:/dev/./urandom, that also
fixes it.  But I think we can workaround this more "generally" by doing the workaround suggested
in the Jetty issue (pass java.util.Random not java.security.SecureRandom).
> However, it's still not clear how widespread / what evns this issue really affects (besides
mine)...
