### Re-Opening Homework Sets Changes Student seed''?

One of my colleagues who is using WeBWorK asked about the likelihood of the student seed''s for a given problem set to change when the set is re-opened. My colleague decided to re-open some earlier sets that she had assigned to her students so that they could make up some missed work. However, some of the students who had worked on the sets based on the original due date said that the newly re-opened sets had different problems in terms of values.
I was under the impression that the student-specific problems stayed unchanged until you manually changed the seed'' for a given problem.
Am I mistaken?

Thank you.
