Confusingly, calling "random.seed(...)" is not enough. A too quick check once
gave me the impression that it was (the first call of random.random() indeed
returned the same value), but in order to store/restore the complete state
you need to use the provided functions random.getstate() and
random.setstate() which return the state as a a 3-tuple of an int, a tuple
containing 625 ints and a None here.
