Comment(by bgamari):

 Well, it seems that `nextIndex` isn't wrapping correctly when used in
 `uniformWord32`. Currently it is implemented as,
 nextIndex :: Integral a => a -> Int
 nextIndex i = fromIntegral j
     where j = fromIntegral (i+1) :: Word8
 If I trace the index values over iterations of `uniformWord32`, I find
 that they grow beyond 256, resulting in the crash.

 If I implement `nextIndex` with a simple `mod`, on the other hand, things
 work fine,
 nextIndex :: Integral a => a -> Int
 nextIndex i = fromIntegral $ (i + 1) `mod` 256

 Simon, is it possible that the optimizer could be now optimizing out the
