No, I just replaced the standard JavaScript random generator by obne of my own making. And I am sure that new one works.

For me, the Diagram in this article does randomize. But only when you press 'Restart' in the AI control bar; the initial display is always of the 'nominal' setup. The diagramsfirst Diagram in the comments to it does not randomize, though. But it also do not contain a shuffle=... parameter.

It could also be a problem that you have multiple diagrams on one page. It seems the shuffle triggered by 'Restart' (or in fact any of the navigation buttons) acts on the 'active' Diagram, i.e. the one you last used. And pressing the buttons or opening the AI control bar doesn't count as 'use'. (This is arguably a bug.) So be sure to touch a piece in the diagram before you press 'Restart'.
