I think you have a file which contains a function which invokes
random, right?

(defun brad-foo-func ()
  ...code which invokes (random 9)...)

My suggestion was to call (random t) *once*:

(random t)
(defun brad-foo-func ()
  ...code which invokes (random 9) ...)

I apologize if this was already clear, and if you tried it, and it
failed.  But I'm getting the impression you were trying something
else.
