+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Random.Next(int min, int may) always returns min
+Class Random
+The Random.Next(int min, int max) always returns
+min... No random number is generated.
+I call this method in a separate thread...
+To reproduce the problem, you can download the
+test program at http://developer.agamura.com/resources
+To compile the program, just type 'nant' or
+'mono NAnt.exe' from the project's top directory.
+To start the program, type 'mono ThermometerConsole.exe'...
+Then, the console starts, and you can type one of the
+following commands:
+help     to get the help message
+current  to get the current temperature (this shoul be just a random
+         value between -273 (absolute zero) and 100
+average  to get the average of the last detected temperatures
+As you will see, typing 'current' always returns -273...
