Its entirely possible its a bug in ghc-pkg rather than cabal. Perhaps
those pesky .manifest files are still floating around breaking

Yeah, but when I tried again it didn't work still. I wonder why - its
possible one of the versions isn't as up to date as I think.
Otherwise, it may still be an issue - did you push the patch?

getChar in a loop? You can always do:
c <- getChar
If you so feel like it. You can even use putStr "\b \b" to move back
