actually, srandom stuff was calles purposively in wsock_init. it's
supposed to make secret cookies for AF_UNIX sockets random. i know
that calling srandom() isn't the best way to assure this, but it's
better than nothing. I'll probably replace newlib's random to calls to
windows crypto-api, but until then, i think, srandom should be called
during init.
