Thanks for looking it up :-)  Yes, that's exactly what I have in mind,
and indeed I see now that the file descriptor was not kept opened, so
it didn't have the problem anyway.  However rpython.rlib.rurandom line
101 keeps a file descriptor opened and reuses it without checking,
which is the problem here.

A bientôt,
