Additionally, moving `Random` initialization out of tested method marginally improves the times. I also went back to remember why this test even exists, and it has to do with [Full GC handling pinned objects specially](http://hg.openjdk.java.net/shenandoah/jdk8/hotspot/rev/bc0f0cfed315). I injected the bug back, and the test still caught it.

Looks good to me! Thank you!
