My mistake, OFB does not have this property.  I thought there was a
common mode with this property, but it appears that I am mistaken.

If it makes you feel any better, you can consider the PRNG the
encryption of constant text, perhaps using the real datastream as some
kind of IV.  The content of the chaff is not relevant; ideally you
would use a high-bandwidth HWRNG such as Quantis.
