Well, yeah - a solution it is not, but we sure know a lot about the
problem now.  Your ghc is fundamentally broken - hGetContents, a
very commonly used base library function, can't survive the runtime's
own timer signals.  Obviously this doesn't happen for other users,
maybe even on OpenSolaris?  I'm sure someone has a clue how this
could happen.
