Just out of curiosity: Why is this the case? Naively, I would assume that
you can't say much about the value returned by getKey, but at least I would
think that in repeated program runs, the same sequence of values would be
produced. Well, unless somehow the values depend on pointer values, which
will screw this up because of ASLR.
