Miscompilation, exception omitted with -O

Following program is miscompiled when compiled with -O.

module Main where

wrap x = [x]!!0

f :: [Int] -> a
f a = foldr (\b -> \c -> c) (undefined ()) (a ++ a) 0

main = do
  print $ (f [] :: String)
  print $ wrap $ (f [] :: Int)
  print $ wrap $ (f [] :: (Int, Int, Int, Int))

The result of running it on my machine (Linux x86-64) is following:

zsh: segmentation fault  ./test7

Looking at the Core it seems that instead of the expected undefined a partially-applied function is returned. GHC 7.3.20111022 was used for testing.

Not reproducible with either 7.2.1 or 7.3.20111114 (last night's build), but a slightly older build I had does exhibit the bug (7.3.20111109). I suspect this was fixed by #5475. I'll add a test and close.
