in thread Randomize an array

It is indeed not quite my test. However in this case your test sensitive to the non-randomness since a single hash bucket tends to form a rising string of numbers.

However the test that I suggested is more sensitive to finding a fresh deck of cards that is not very well shuffled. (Which is where I first heard of this test. Trust me, I did not invent this one. :-)
