"Please wait, entropy is being gathered"

Hey everyone. Has anyone seen this particular message before?

"Please wait, entropy is being gathered. Please do some work it would keep you from getting bored, because it will improve the quality of the entropy."

I'm seeing it on an HP-UX 10.20 machine running Subversion 1.5.2 from CollabNet, but ONLY as part as our automated update-and-build scripts, which run as a cronjob and without a tty. I can't seem to get the messages to show up under any other circumstances, so I can't recreate it manually, and running the cronjob myself doesn't generate the error. In fact, I only see it in the logs. At the moment, I'm just grepping it out, but I'd like to find the root cause if I can. Anyone know what the root cause might be and how to get rid of it?

(As an aside, I'm entertained at the idea of "good quality" entropy. I know what they mean, but it's still a somewhat comical phrase.)
