One instance (posted by a collegue who is also on this ML I think) was a
problem with haveged and gpg key generation for a smartcard:
One reason this hasn't been observed by a wider audience might be the
bad error messages from programs using a random number generator :-)
In that case it is reproduceable because haveged just started up.
And it might still be something different altogether, I don't think this
was debugged further.
