To answer my own question: this is exactly it, ghc derives less than
optimal code in this case.  Rather than reiterate the case here, I did
a quick writeup at http://blog.malde.org/, and would be quite happy
about any feedback or suggestions.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
