I am willing to work on this, but I thought I'd go fishing for some
advice first. My program uses: forkIO, STM, and FFI.

I think that "heap exhausted" sometimes gets reported 
as "evacuate: strange closure", 
(cf.  http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/5085 )
and yieldCapability() might be another instance.

Thanks - J.W.
