Description

The random number in the json structure [mc][primary][random_seed] is not random. It is a large number which increments by one for each occurance.

This is sometimes correct behaviour, depending on your cards. If random_seed_algorithm is set to incrementing_random, the first time we make a primary, the seed takes a random number. Then for subsequent primaries we increment it by 1.

This is then used to set the seed for GEANT4 MC.
