This is already in 0.64, but was okay in 0.63

In R version <= 0.63 :

> .Random.seed <- c(111,2,3)
> rnorm(1)
    Warning: Wrong length .Random.seed; forgot initial RNGkind? set to Wichmann-Hill
    [1] -0.4811529
> .Random.seed
    [1] 0 6968 28861 26054
>

Now in 0.65 (pre-release) and both versions of 0.64 :

> .Random.seed <- c(111,2,3)
> rnorm(1)

 and in order not to forget this one...
