In the satoshi client... how are private keys created?  What is the randomization technique used to create them, and how is this randomization NOT reproducible?
The network tries to produce one block per 10 minutes. It does this by automatically adjusting how difficult it is to produce blocks.

I've wondered this myself.  I hope someone with knowledge on the matter answers your question and I look forward to seeing what that answer is.

Last time I checked, Bitcoin used:
- Microsecond time.
- GUI events
- /dev/urandom if available
- HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA on Windows
