[Bioc-devel] check error in SeqVarTools

How are you generating random numbers?  How is the generation ending up with a missing number?  This seems like it might be an edge case that should be caught in your code?

I see that SeqVarTools has an error in check on malbec2, after passing
checks for a week with no changes to the code. This is a result of a unit
test which generates random numbers; once in a while a particular set of
random numbers ends up generating a missing value in a calculation which
causes the unit test to fail. This particular failure is very poorly timed
since it happens to be the date of the deadline for packages to pass
checks. I fully expect tomorrow's build to pass again, so I hope
SeqVarTools can remain in the release.
