Don't add uninitialised data or check if it is not in md_rand...

Recently I blogged about static code analysis. I am learning more about it and when I have some more experience with nDepend I'll share some knowledge on this blog.
More than a year ago there was THAT story about random number generator in debian. Well, it was pretty funny and pretty serious. For me mostly funny ;)

And this is the famous revision: diff.
In comments the developer claims that Purify made him do it ;) I'm not saying that this is the effect of code analysis, it's just a funny story. Still...
The funniest part for me is that this bug existed for about two years before it was spotted.

For your consideration ;)
