Importing random fails with the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>

    super(Random, self).seed(a)
OverflowError: long too big to convert

"Fixing" the line:

super(Random, self).seed(a)

to be:

super(Random, self).seed(1)

gets a new error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File 
"/Users/marc/fieldwork/field/distribution/application/field.app/Contents

    getrandbits = _inst.getrandbits
AttributeError: 'Random' object has no attribute 'getrandbits'

commenting out the offending assignment gets you an importing random 
package.

Perhaps the symptom of a core bug rather than a library one? I also 
recall using random in 2.5alpha3.
