Bug in module random (stdlib-1.16.5, R13B04)

Hej Florian,

I can only reproduce this result when _all_ three parameters are equal
to 0 (Using R13B04). If a single parameter is unequal to 0 the random
number generator works as advertised.
Getting {0,0,0} by erlang:now() is unlikely, but maybe updating the
documentation to reflect the preconditions for random:seed/1 would be
a good action point.
