>Yes. So use a more reliable option for norm_rand.

ok.  It seems that reliable here refers to the fact that the implementation does
not allow the state of the Box-Muller generator to be queried. I'm not an expert
on these things. Would you recommend one of the the other normal generators on a
theoretical basis too?
