Well I'm a total Haskell newbie, and you're using Haskell to write
imperative code, so it's really hard for me to read, but looking at your
code, you have:

(IOUArray Int Bool) -- an array of Bool

Bool is a 32-bit value in Haskell AFAIK?  (or possibly a machine-dependent
sized value, but certainly not a bit?)
