Subject: Re: [Puppet Users] rand losing its randomness after using fqdn_rand

Not sure that this should be considered a bug in fqdn_rand - the idea
with fqdn_rand is that it should generate the same random number
each time it is run in order to maintain idempotency.
The bug is that it does:

* set salt to cause consistant random numbers
* get random data

I think it should do:

* set salt to cause consistant random numbers
* get random data
* reset salt to produce random data

This will retain the behaviour of fqdn_rand and not break random for everyone else
