So, here's a test case

I couldn't figure out how to get the error to happen with HUnit or a monad transformer. But here are some additional notes:
Compiling with -O0 fixes it.
Using mtl instead of monads-fd doesn't change anything.
Changing the ("" == "") to True results in not getting a GHC internal error, but the test run reports 0 failures, which is incorrect. Changing the import of Control.Monad.State.Strict to Control.Monad.State also results in no crash, but 0 failures reported.
None of these issues occurs in GHC 6.10.4. I haven't tested on versions other than 6.10.4 and 6.12.3.
