The morale is that "uniform" random numbers doesn't imply that every value in the range will eventually be generated once!Yes it does. (The probability that some value is never generated is 0.) The actual morale is that random number generators do not generate true randomness, and poor random number generators may generate sequences that do not look remotely random.
'pseudo random number generators' would be a more accurate term.
