Cabal's detailed test interface

Hi all,

I tried to use the detailed-1.0 test interface, according to the
instructions on What
I got:

bash-3.2$ cabal --version
> cabal-install version 0.10.2
> using version of the Cabal library
> bash-3.2$ cabal configure
> cabal: HarmTrace.cabal:30: Test suite "test-harmtrace" is missing required
> field "type" or the field is not present in all conditional branches. The
> available test types are: exitcode-stdio-1.0

Snippet of the .cabal file:

test-suite              test-harmtrace
>   type:                 detailed-1.0
>   test-module:          HarmTrace.Test.Test
>   build-depends:        HUnit >= 1.2, Cabal >=

What am I doing wrong? It seems like my cabal does not support anything
other than exitcode...
