[Haskell-cafe] UArray Word16 Word32 uses twice as much memory as it

I am having an issue with these unboxed arrays.
I have some code that creates this structure:: (Array Word16 (UArray Int
Word32), Array Word16 (UArray Int Word8)), and I am finding that it uses
about twice as much memory as I had anticipated.
This tuple is returned strict, and I think I haven't left much room for
other data remaining in memory.
It should hold one Word8 and one Word32 for a data set of 100 million
records, and it uses around 1 gigabyte. By my calculations, it should be
half that. So I was wondering if I might have hit upon a 64-bit vs 32-bit
I compile with:
ghc --make load05 -O1 -funbox-strict-fields -XBangPatterns -fvia-C
(also tried with -O2, and without the -fvia-C)
using the packaged version of ghc 6.10.1 on MacOSX 10.5.5
Grateful for any pointers,
Arne D Halvorsen
