Random products from a category command not working, why?

I’ve read lots of threads about this but still haven’t found a definitive answer:

I have read that the following code entered into the ‘General Information’ section of a CMS page through web admin:

{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="41"}}

Should display random products from the specified category (in this instance category ‘41’). However, I don’t see anything, despite there definitely being products in that category.

Is there something extra that needs to be in the ‘Custom Design’ box within Admin?

Why isn’t this working? I am running 1.1.6.
