patch to fix graphics/gegl

Random number sequence is always the same because the seed of g_random_* function is set to a fixed value.
It affects everything linked to libgegl.

For example:
mkdir ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/splashes
ln -s /usr/local/share/gimp/images/gimp-splash.png ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/splashes/
find ~/collection_of_cute_cats -type f -iname \*.jpg -print0 | xargs -0 -J % cp % ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/splashes/
gimp --new-instance &
gimp --new-instance &
gimp --new-instance &
gimp --new-instance &
gimp --new-instance &
Comment 1 VVD 2020-07-24 07:05:55 UTC
Is it upstream bug?
If yes, did you report it upstream?
Comment 2 Tatsuki Makino 2020-07-26 03:58:08 UTC
(In reply to VVD from comment #1)

Yes, probably upstream bug. But doesn't this happen in the Windows or Linux version of GIMP? That hasn't been pointed out yet.
And I have not yet reported this issue upstream. Additionally, I would like to ask someone to report on my behalf :) Because I have already used attachment 216736 [details] to make sure the problem is remedied, but I don't know if that's the right way to fix it. So could someone please inspect it and report it upstream?
Comment 3 Tatsuki Makino 2020-07-29 22:03:53 UTC
I correct my comment #2.
I sent an email to the developer within GEGL.
Comment 4 Tatsuki Makino 2020-07-30 11:43:42 UTC
The fix was applied upstream.
After the next release, attachment 216736 [details] will no longer be required.
Comment 5 Tatsuki Makino 2020-08-14 07:21:50 UTC
gegl-0.4.26.tar.xz already exists.
It includes this fix.
