[LON-CAPA-admin] FC5 + x86_64 + &random_*

We recently discovered that in some case the random numbers on a
machine that was _both_
- x86_64
- Fedora Core 5

Would see changing random numbers if the problem in question used any
of the &random_* functions that take a $seed argument.

No other combination of machine and OS would have been affected.

We have released an updated version of perl-Math-Random 0.69-1
to address this.

yum update 

should install it.

And a webserver restart will be needed.

Sorry about that.
