+Bug#: 58412
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS: All
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: CORLIB
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com                            
+ReportedBy: spouliot@videotron.ca               
+QAContact: mono-bugs@ximian.com
+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: System.Guid isn't guaranteed to be unique
+The current algorithm dosn't have the MAC so System.Random is only seeded 
+with the current time.
+We should generate GUID as defined in section 3.4 (pure random + some 
+marking bits).
