Yes, there is a mailing list specifically for ghc bugs

This is definitely a bug.

The first thing is to compile (all your modules) with -dcore-lint.  That often localises the problem dramatically.

Even if that localises it, I may well need to be able to reproduce it myself, so if you felt able to shrink your program by deleting stuff, or (next best) tar up the entire thing so we can build it, that would be great.
