Oops, that is indeed the case, thanks for calling my attention to
this.  I guess I shall only update the LLVM toolchain on the builders
and everything will go back to the normal.

It may be because the server was built with GHC 7.6.3.  Perhaps moving
to some more recent version, such as 7.8.3, could solve the problem.
It may also happen that is simply OS-specific, or the bug is in the
server's code directly.
What I can do for now is to rebuild the server with 7.8.3 and have the
clients running with the old LLVM to get the same amount of data.

Yes, that is right.
