Perhaps an actual bug report should be made.  However, I don't have time to 
reduce the test case at the moment.

Also, I tried two tricks:
(D# x) <-> (W64# x) which works fine
(F# x) <-> (W32# x) which produced garbage, so I had to replace it with 

Does anyone have a clue why one works and one does not?

I'll probable split it for a future release.

Hopefully it is possible to have cabal patches contributed to allow ghc 6.6 to 
work.  I have no idea if Hugs could work.
