It seems to me that 2080 (per the accepted answer to your [3]) is indeed "a rather small len(x)", and that the docs are correct as written.

I wonder if it would be worth adding a footnote that explains how to calculate that example 2080 number from the documented period of the random number generator, to make the concepts involved a little bit clearer?
