i think that my problems is because of this bug, if it is far more
frequent. at least i will be glad if ghc and my program will be no
more crashed. one problem why i postpone downloading of current stable
compiler is the http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/637 bug.
can you please try to fix it?
