Sorry for the delay, almost overlooked this one!

Hmmm, very peculiar. I would probably begin by compiling with `-auto-all
-caf-all -prof` and run the resulting executable with `+RTS -xc`. SIGINT
the process after a second or so and see what the backtrace looks like.
While worth trying, this probably won't help too much as your problem is
likely RTS-related. You might try stracing the executable and see if it
is ever even trying a syscall.
Unfortunately, I doubt it is as the program appears to be hitting heap
and stack overflows. This is quite perplexing. I'm going to try to
reproduce the issue on my end.
