 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).

+Joerg, I don't know if you have seen this one but it could affect 
+you if you are running multiple servers and expect unique GUID.
