 I recently upgraded cabal-install and started getting this error:

 $ cabal install HDBC
 Resolving dependencies...
 cabal: Couldn't read cabal file "./HDBC/2.2.5/HDBC.cabal"

 I also get the same error when I try to install one of my own packages
 that depends on HDBC.  I tried changing my HDBC dependency to == 2.2.2 as
 well as >= 2.2.6, but still get the same error for version 2.2.5.

 I have cabal-install version 0.6.2 and Cabal version
