You are correct.  The hash randomization only applies to strings.  None of the other object hashes were altered.  Whether this is a vulnerability or not depends greatly on what is exposed to users (generally strings) and how it is used.

For the most part, it is considered a feature that integers hash to themselves.  That is very fast to compute :-) Also, it tends to prevent hash collisions for consecutive integers.
