[Samba] Kodi crashes when trying to browse network

I maintain Kodi[1] in RPMFusion[2] and the latest version of Kodi, 18.0, is crashing 
when trying to browse the SMB network. The previous version, 17.x, worked fine.

The backtrace shows that Samba was not able to open /dev/urandom, which can't be 
true and must be masking another issue. The issue occurs on any Fedora 28 or 29 
system (multiple user reports[3]). SELinux is disabled and /dev/urandom is chmod' 666.

Any pointers?
