Subject/dev/random probs in 2.4test(12-pre3)
Hi,

It looks like the random driver in 2.4test will return a
short read, rather than blocking. This is breaking vpnd
(http://sunsite.dk/vpnd/) which breaks with "failed to
gather random data" or similar.

Here's a sample strace:

open("/dev/random", O_RDONLY) = 3
read(3, "q\321Nu\204\251^\234i\254\350\370\363\"\305\366R\2708V"..., 72) = 29
close(3) = 0

Have the semantics of the device changed, or is vpnd doing
something wrong?

Matthew.
