The fix itself is ok, with the caveat that I might have forgotten to do proper
class-side initialization.

Fixing Random is more involved. Among others, the fix uses the sound input as
a random source, which takes quite a bit of time - acceptable for once every
100,000 UUID's, not acceptable for general random number generation.
