Ah, that must be it!

I'm not sure why you say "in python2" ? The shebang in genrandconfig is:

#!/usr/bin/env python

and I indeed noticed the issue with Python 3.x because I started using
genrandconfig on my updated Fedora system, which now uses Python 3.x as
"python".

Indeed. I'll update the commit log and resend.

Thanks for the hint!
