This is a good bit of detective work.   A little more may track down the 

rk_random_seed is not that complicated of a function.  I suspect you 
could call the individual functions inside it separately to determine 
the problem. 

There are a lot of platform specific structures here.  It's hard to see 
immediately where a problem is.
