I will change the random number generator built into OpenSSL to always
return sequential numbers, something like:
static char unsigned val = 0;
while ( num-- )
*buff++ = val++;
This shouldn't break anything.
Then if ever I am in doubt about where a random number came from, I just
check to see if it's something like 0102030405.
