The ghc-builds mailing list has the all the results -- however,
earlier there was the concern that folks do not want to watch it every
day.  I still do, just to know everything is all right.  Filtering the
false positives out might be solved automatically, I think, hopefully
I can come up with a solution soon.

Anyway, for starter, here is a nice core dump for linux-ppc64:
