It looks like it was not yet decided if the CryptoGen API or a weak LCG should be used on Windows. Extract of add-randomization-to-3.1-dmalcolm-2012-02-01-001.patch:

+#ifdef MS_WINDOWS
+#if 1
+        (void)win32_urandom((unsigned char *)secret, secret_size, 0);
+#else
+        /* fast but weak RNG (fast initialization, weak seed) */

Does someone know how to link Python to advapi32.dll (on Windows) to avoid GetModuleHandle("advapi32.dll")?
