Comment(by simonmar):

 I reproduced this today, but didn't get very far with diagnosing it
 because the code that fails is very complicated.  Something is writing
 beyond the end of an `ARR_WORDS`, and the code blob that does it is in
 `random-source:Data.Random.Source.MWC.$wa`, but that function is huge and
 I have no idea what it is supposed to do.  The error could well be
 somewhere else.  We could add some bounds checks to the array primitives
 (maybe with `-debug`), though I think it probably wouldn't help me in this

 I have some other bugs I'm chasing so hopefully this one will get fixed as
 a side-effect of fixing something else.  Failing that, we will need a
 smaller test case.
