I think there are two things going on.  First, the monomorphism  
restriction is causing the types to be different.  I'm not sure why  
Integer -> Integer is the default choice, though.  I tend to write the  
type signatures I want before I write the implementation, so I don't  
run into these kinds of issues often.
