See the attached code. Use "make" to compile and you should get an executable file called "Bug.bin", then you can run it by typing the command "./Bug.bin N" where N is the number of concurrent threads.

For N<=32. The program works fine. It will simply loop and you need another terminal to kill it.

For N>32, it always crashes immediately:

$ ./Bug.bin 33
Bug.bin: internal error: too many workers; runaway worker creation?
    (GHC version 6.5.20060620 for i386_unknown_linux)
    Please report this as a GHC bug:
