New submission from Chris Rebert <pybugs at rebertia.com>:

The randomization introduced by the fix for issue 13703 means that the example string hash values given in http://docs.python.org/dev/faq/design.html#how-are-dictionaries-implemented are liable to become more difficult to reproduce (in fact, the example already currently implicitly assumes a 32-bit build). Either the phrasing should be changed to emphasize that these are *possible* values the strings *might* hash to, or no concrete hash values should be given at all.
