Agreed.  Failing the tests means you have a problem.  Passing them
does not mean your hash function is secure.  POMELO had failed earlier
when it had a bug, so that's why I reran it.

So, take your 32-bit MT SRNG.  Now, generate data from it 7 times with
different random seeds, and do a non-linear combination of them (if
the last operator in the MT function was an ADD, do and XOR or
vise-versa).  This is closer to what I'm seeing in POMELO.
