Issue #6068 has been updated by Eric Hodel.


Daniel, I couldn't use your patch as it was not line-wrapped to 80 columns and was too-specific to String.  As Marc-Andre pointed out, the randomization behavior applies to Fixnum, Hash, String, Symbol, Array, etc., so I applied a patch based on his suggestion.
