Yes, it is a feature: If you get this message you should not use this
program for real work!!! The enctryption is in this case VERY WEAK!!!
If you want to test it anyway, I suggest that you comment it out.
BUT PLEASE REMEMBER THAT in THIS CASE YOU HAVE NO REAL ENCRYTION
and I should think of a way to tell the receiver that this message
has no real encryption.
Even more worse: Using this FAKED RNG may LEAK OUT YOUR SECRET KEY
- THIS IS NO JOKE!

Hmmm, this should work.
