That was relatively easy to fix but I don't think I can submit a patch
as there is no repository for the code and the email of the maintainer
is no longer valid.
I am probably using the package incorrectly but worse, for some types it
does not seem to generate random values - see below. I don't think
there's anyway of submitting a bug report; I'm reporting it here so
there is at least some awareness there might be a problem.
