    I am seeing something very strange. I am using the below code to generate a random number.
    Sub p5_StateChanged

    If p5click = False Then
    Log("state 5 changed")
    p5click = Not(p5click)
    Dim num As Long = Rnd(0, 361)
    Dim deg As Int = num
    Log("DEG = ", deg)
    Dim steps As Int = 4096 * (deg / 360)
    For i = 0 To steps
    stepcount = stepcount + steps
    Log("Step Count = ", stepcount)
    p5click = False
    End If

    End Sub
    It does not matter if I recompile the B4R code, reset the UNO, power down and up the stepper motor and reset the UNO - the "random numbers generated always follow the same pattern from a "reset" i.e
