std::mt19937_64::seed() should take a 64-bit seed (unsigned long long int), but instead it takes a 32-bit seed (unsigned long).

(My replies keep disappearing, so I'm trying one more time, without example code. Sorry if you get three copies!)

Thanks again for reporting this bug. We've fixed it, and the fix will be available in VC14 RTM.

Thanks for reporting this bug. I wanted to let you know what's happening with it. I'm still keeping track of it, but it's been resolved as "Deferred" because we may not have time to fix it in VC12. (Note: VC8 = VS 2005, VC9 = VS 2008, VC10 = VS 2010, VC11 = VS 2012.)

Note: Connect doesn't notify me about comments. If you have any further questions, please E-mail me.
