Note that this affects other Random methods, too.  There are several places in the source where something of the form `int(i * random.random())` is used to select an integer in the half-open range [0, i).

And a nitpick: it's a stretch to describe double-rounding on multiplication (or any other arithmetic operation) as a bug: Python-the-language makes no promises about adhering to IEEE 754 arithmetic rule.  (In fact, it makes no promises about using IEEE 745 formats in the first place.)
