Yes, how did you do it?
Did it involve very large literals? GHC is known to have some
limitations with that. For example, on my machine, a String
literal that is larger than about 1 Gb will cause GHC to
overflow the RTS stack. And a list literal with only a few
thousand elements can cause GHC to suck up all memory and
bring my computer to its knees.
