It's possible that you have problems with laziness (memory being
occupied by thunks). To quickly confirm this, try executing a
non-profiled build with +RTS -hT.

If it takes too long to complete, just abort it in the middle -- the
profiling data will be written anyway (unless you kill it in a too
violent way).
