I don't think that's the problem. First of all, it works perfectly in
one case and second, rng() returns a reference to a static class member.


As usual you might be on to something. If this is off-topic, please tell
me to go somewhere else with my question. Checking the program's size
showed the values to be constant but nevertheless you did make me check
it in valgrind which is where I found the error.

Thank you both for your quick replies,
