What you have just written is exactly what made me think there would be 
the same seed - not between different calls to my script, of course, but 
I don't use data that was produced by different calls to the script. 
Currently simulation and fitting are done by the same script, so I 
assumed that the PRNG would be initialized through 'import random', and 
that would be that. Or have I been mistaken/misunderstood the point you 
were trying to make?
