GHC 6.4.3 is stalled

I have been mindlessly recompiling 6.5 over and over and I _did_ see  
a problem with the test runner which I reported. Simon Marlow  
mentioned it could be a problem with threading.

Are there tickets for the threading issues? Description of the  
problem? Possible ways to reproduce it?
