My operating system is a Debian Lenny GNU/Linux, my CPU is:
$ grep 'model name' /proc/cpuinfo
model name	: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T5550  @ 1.83GHz

I'm using ghc 6.8.2 and gcc 4.3.2, both from lenny package. I tried
the same code with ghc 6.12.1 and the result was the same:
real	0m45.121s
user	0m45.075s
sys	0m0.000s
