[Haskell-cafe] proper way to generate a random data in criterion

I'm measuring performance of the insertion operation of red-black
trees. For input, three kinds of [Int] are prepared: the increasing
the order, decreasing order, and random.

The random case is 4 or 5 times slower than the others. I'm afraid
that my program also measured the cost of random Int generation.

My benchmark code can be found:


Does anyone kindly take a look and tell me whether or not my criterion
code measures the cost of random Int generation? If so, would you
suggest how to avoid it?
