I disagree. The example is just that a short example
that demonstrates how to use random_seed. Anyone using
that example in his/her code without testing the results

That is unfair. Few scientists will know that system clocks are
an iffy aspect of a programming language, especially as there are
no fundamental reasons that should be the case.
This has nothing to do with the iffy-ness of system clocks. My
disagreemnet is predicated on the stupidity of using a 10 line
example subroutine without actually inspecting what it does on
whatever OS that one chooses to use. Perhaps, my expectations
for the IQ of scientists is too high. Are you suggesting that
every code snippet in the manual should contain a cautionary
comment of the form:
! This is only an example. Use with extreme caution.
This has wandered off topic into some pretty snitty territory... truce?
