[LON-CAPA-users] Randomlist difficulties

I am wondering if anyone has had any difficulties with randomlist in 
version 2.1x.
We have a homework question that we have been using for several semesters 
that scrambles the order of the parts of the question.  This is 
accomplished using

<randomlist show="5">

<part id="part1">...</part>
<part id="part2">...</part>
<part id="part3">...</part>
<part id="part4">...</part>
<part id="part5">...</part>


We have successfully used this question for several semesters using 
previous versions of LON-CAPA, and have only recently developed the 
issues.  The question seems to work okay in the construction space, but 
when it is imported into the course, it seems random as to the number of 
parts that a student actually sees.  All of the parts are listed in the 
the Navigation screen (it says the question should have 5 parts), but the 
number of parts that show up is definitiely not 5 for everyone.

I tried to look at the bugzilla page to see if this had already been 
reported, but I am not very familiar with the page yet.  I am sorry about 
that, and I will try to become more familiar with it to save everyone some 

Thanks to all for your time and efforts.
