    The per-task might break thinks up in case

    (tsk1->file != tsk2->file) && (rotate(tsk1->file, tsk1->random) == rotate(tsk2->file, tsk2->rotate))

    but I agree, that the overall idea of comparing not bare pointers, but those poisoned with
    some global value can address the Peter's concerns about rootkits.

    Thanks,
    Pavel
