I agree that in other contexts the distinction is much more significant; I thank you for your contribution but I am interested in the more subtle distinctions of the example sentences above.

An interesting distinction. Why do you parse the sentences as you do? Could it be equally valid to make your assertion in reverse, as it were: the second seeingly refers to the randomness and the first to the variation?
