Same problem with minstd_rand, minstd_rand0, lagged_fibonacci (calls
minstd_rand0.seed(x))and ecuyer1988 (calls linear_congruential.seed(x)).

Solution used by glibc (glibc-2.3.2.ds1/glibc-2.3.2/stdlib/random_r.c) :

   /* We must make sure the seed is not 0. Take arbitrarily 1 in this
case. */
   if (seed == 0)
     seed = 1;

PS: seed(0) is ok for rand48, kreutzer1986 and hellekalek1995.
