OTP seed solution? - strong, tried before???



A very simple idea came to me today that I`m sure has been done 
before and I wanted to find out if it has any problems I haven`t 
seen:

A strong random generator (ie. a BBS) is seeded with a true random 
seed (derived possibly from keyboard latency) and used each time a 
message is send to create a message length randon string.

This string is XOR`d or added to the message creating a OTP.

The recipient has previously been sent a seed value for the generator 
encrypted under say RSA and signed to prevent a man in the middle 
attack.

Each set of recipient<->sender pairs has a seed unique to them.

This seems good to me but the key distribution mess (ie. hundreds of 
keys about) is the big problem, has anyone done any research into 
possible solutions to this???
