  (GHC version 7.4.1 for i386-unknown-linu
    ( t{tv acw0} [tv] :: ghc-prim:GHC.Prim.*{(w) tc 34d} )

Please report this as a GHC bug:

I should be clear. This happened while I was tracking down a bug involving overlapping instances in MY code.

Can you paste the code causing the crash?

  • difficulty set to Unknown
  • Status changed from new to infoneeded

Hard to do anything without more info. There are various tickets involving "tcTyVarDetails" (as you can see with a quick search), some of them fixed, so I'm guessing it's one of those.
