It is probably a pseudo-random number from 1 to n where n is the number of songs.

What that means is that several songs may play more than once before all the songs are played.
This is probably due to a poorly-written pseudo-random-number-generating algorithm.

It would be nice to have a real shuffle feature, where all the songs must be played once before any song plays a second time.
One must note the difference between random and shuffle. For those individuals who want shuffle implemented correctly, there is always http://www.rockbox.org/.
