Here is a patch that is based on Apache's mod_ssl code. mod_ssl perturbs the PRNG state more often but I think that's overkill for Python.

The new patch only affects the PRNG state of the child process. In my opinion it is the better way to solve this issue. The RAND API does some internal locking. Bad things might happen if one thread of a process calls fork() while another is in the middle of a locked RAND operation.
