currently --seed is just used for srandom() to seed the random generator. On most systems, random() uses a single well defined algorithm, but a few systems (like Win32) use another algorithm. The result is the --seed test fails and the results aren't determnistic.
Honestly, it's probably not that big of a deal, but it is something I would like to see.
