Below is the code I'm getting for find_before2 with 7.4.2. As you can see, everything has been fused (although I notice that GHC isn't pushing x_a11p and y1_a124 into the branches for some reason, looks like a new regression but not a particularly bad one and nothing to do with fusion).

I'm using 7.0.3, but I tried with 7.4.2 and it looks like what you
got, with only one letrec.

So it probably has to do with new optimizations introduced since 7.0.

Thanks for the help, and I will use this "count the letrecs" technique
in the future if I have questions.
