Could you describe the bug bit more?

As for srandom, src/backend/postmaster/postmaster.c does it
already, and doing it more will make matters only worse.

I would not object to just sticking '& 255' there, but if
current code has problems then I imagine lot more code could be
affected.  Or are you just silencing some warning?
