The examples you mention are actually use "stupid" seeding with the 
simple reason
to minimize "non-xmlsec" related code. If you want to use XMLSEC in any 
application you *do need* to seed crypto engine with real random numbers.
Please take a look at apps/xmlsec.c in xmlsec package or any OpenSSL 
on how to do this correctly.
