Description:
------------
I pick the first two products out of the shuffled array for random productviews on a page. I use 3 or more products.
With PHP 4.3.2 it works nice (every refresh another two products). With PHP 4.3.3 it doesn't seem to work. Every time the same products.

Same PHP.INI file as 4.3.2 (which worked fine).

Reproduce code:
---------------
$ads = array(); 
while($product = mysql_fetch_array($arts)) { 	
  $ads[] = $product; 
} 
		
shuffle($ads);

$prod = $ads[0];
echo ($prod[name]);

$prod = $ads[1];
echo ($prod[name]);

Expected result:
----------------
The first two array-records are other products every time at refresh.

Actual result:
--------------
The first two array-records are the same products each refresh.

Try calling srand(time()); before the shuffle.
