I don't think calling `hashCode()` is an issue as long as `SSLSessionContextImpl` doesn't override `hashCode()` (which it doesn't do) and that overridden version of `hashCode()` accesses uninitialized fields. But for the sake of getting this done, I've changed the initialization to use the result `System.nanoTime()` as a seed for a new `java.util.Random` instance and call `nextInt()` on that instance. That seems like a good compromise to me :)
