When using a tuple that include a string the results are not consistent when invoking a new interpreter or process.

For example executing the following on a linux machine will yield different results:
python3.6 -c 'import random; random.seed(("a", 1)); print(random.random())"

Please note that the doc string of random.seed states: "Initialize internal state from hashable object."

Python documentation does not. (https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/random.html#random.seed)

This is very confusing, I hope you can fix the behavior, not the doc string.
