Comment(by simonmic):

 I first saw this a few weeks back, since then it has increased and I see
 it on several machines (mac and linux) and with various packages (hledger
 and pandoc among them). Once a package starts giving this error, it also
 means that "cabal configure" is terminating with non-zero exit status and
 no apparent error message in -v3 output. Eg:

 simon at joyful:/repos$ cabal unpack pandoc
 Unpacking to pandoc-1.6/
 simon at joyful:/repos$ cd pandoc-1.6/
 simon at joyful:/repos/pandoc-1.6$ cabal configure && echo OK

 simon at joyful:/repos/pandoc-1.6$

 cabal configure -v3 and ghc-pkg list output are attached. I'm currently
 using ghc 6.12.3, have seen it also with 6.12.1.
