Comment(by gtirloni):

 cabal-install 0.10.2 outputs the following error message for a tarball
 that it can't unpack:

 $ cabal install --reinstall HTTP
 Resolving dependencies...
 cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
 HTTP-4000.1.2 failed while unpacking the package. The exception was:
 user error (truncated tar archive)

 Does it satisfy this ticket's request?
