internal error: evacuate: strange closure type 37792

The following program:

import Data.Array

main = print (array (minBound,maxBound) (zip [0..] (repeat ()))
Array Int ())

leads to a variety of different crashes in 6.4.1, 6.4.2 and the head. I'm fairly sure this was reported once before, but it seems to have crept back in.

With 6.4.2/OpenBSD/x86:

$ ./a.out a.out: internal error: stg_ap_ppp_ret Please report this as a compiler bug. See:

With 6.4.2/Linux/amd64/ghci:

Data.Array> array (minBound,maxBound) (zip [0..] (repeat ()))
Array Int () array Segmentation fault

With 6.5:

$ ./a.out zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped) ./a.out
