Any chance you could investigate this further? I would try this:
- re-link stage2 using EXTRA_HC_OPTS=-debug
- run one of the offending test cases under gdb
Running the compiler under gdb is a bit fiddly: you need to gdb the
binary directly (not the ghc-inplace script), and pass the appropriate
-B option, which you can get from ghc-inplace. I usually create a
little .gdbinit file with a 'set args -B...' command to set up the
arguments. I also usually add +RTS -Ds -RTS to the command line.
