Guid as primary key

When using a Guid as your primary key in a table, does it make
sense to make it a clustered index?

Depends on how the table is used. But if you do and if you are retrieving
many records at a time by PK and there is a good chance that those records
were created at the same time (for example an order details table), you may
want to generate the GUIDs using the 'old' GUID generation function
UuidCreateSeque ntial.

I know that this should be impossible, yet it is happening... I have some c# code that uses a method scoped variable of type Guid. The code assigns Guid.NewGuid() to the variable. This value is then used as a primary key in a database table. I have seen two occasions over the last 6 months where after a certain point in time the same Guid is always generated by the code. I have verified that there is nothing static, the code is...
