Summary0003434: Online clients reset their Random() seed on map start
DescriptionWhenever a client goes through a map change, it seems to have its seed for random functions reset to whatever it was when starting the current instance of Zandronum. It doesn't matter whether it's a map exit, or the "map" command, or reconnecting; it always resets. Restarting Zandronum creates a new seed, but then it just resets to that every time it does a map change.
Steps To Reproduce1) Start up a server with randtest.wad and connect to it.
2) Read the list of numbers labeled "CLIENT".
3) Join the game, and exit.
4) Read the list of numbers again, and notice it didn't change.
5) Change the map to whatever you want, any way you want - the client numbers never change.
