Thanks -- will take a look.  I've also translated the program into
OCaml, which needed some small tweaks to runtime options as well and
now finishes in 14 minutes.  While investigating, found this
comparison of functional and imperative map implementations by
Mauricio Fernandez, the awesomest OCaml thinker:


The functional ones are applicable to Haskell directly.  My result is
with the standard imperative Hashtbl.  Will be fun to compare to dons'
judy binding...
