I have written my own random class, in which I use a static
boost::mt19937. On a single thread always works fine, but on
multithread I get race condition errors. So I would like to create a
static member over all threads. My question should be "how can I
create a static member over multithreads". During searching the web
and reading articles, I think it's a bad idea to do that. I have re-
written my class and change the static member to a non-static member.
Now every thread gets his own object and I don't run into race
