Wish I could say definitively, but I would not seemingly get randomness
otherwise - never looked for the reasons why at the time, but it worked
- though like yourself I don't see why it would influence the runtime
behaviour of the beast.
However, the reasons posted by others on the list seem to sound
plausible - I on the other hand did only recant from experience upon
artificially manufacturing wave burst profiles from wave spectra using
an IFFT, and do recall that the documentation for the mersene twister
did the same.
