We are currently using GHC-6.8.3 so we can't try the fixed version. We'll 
switch to 6.10 after it becomes the stable release and (hopefully) minimal 
work needs to be done to get everything to compile. This bug actually 
perfectly explains the behavior we saw in our full system. 

The distilled test case we reported was based on our then current theory 
that too many connections were the cause of our problem. We're pretty sure 
the behavior we described was real, but it was not the cause of our 
problem as subsequent testing revealed. After delving deeper, we realized 
that the real culprit was too much data over one connection.
