A user has published an album with just 3 pics and now the random media block is showing just 3 pics instead of 5.

This is actually as designed.

Selecting records from a database randomly is actually really inefficient so we've done it in away that overcomes this, but it can have this side effect.

We might be able to negate this a bit, I'll check.

In the meantime, if you only have a relatively small number of items, you should probably display recent media instead. The more media you have, this will happen less frequently.
