  Reporter:  davidt         |        Owner:        
      Type:  defect         |       Status:  new   
  Priority:  normal         |    Milestone:        
 Component:  Cabal library  |      Version:  1.14.0
  Severity:  normal         |     Keywords:        
Difficulty:  unknown        |   Ghcversion:  7.4.1 
  Platform:  Linux          |  
 For some reason the presence of the 'synopsis' field causes haddock
 documentation to fail to build.

 $ cabal unpack dclabel
 $ cabal configure
 $ cabal haddock

 Running Haddock for dclabel-0.0.6...
 Warning: The documentation for the following packages are not installed.
 links will be generated to these packages: rts-1.0, cereal-
 Preprocessing library dclabel-0.0.6...

 <command line>:
     Could not find module `The'
     Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.

 I assume something is mis-configured on my system but have no idea what
 and how to fix it

 $ cabal --version
 cabal-install version 0.14.0
 using version 1.14.0 of the Cabal library

 $ ghc --version
 The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 7.4.1

 $ haddock --version
 Haddock version 2.10.0, (c) Simon Marlow 2006
 Ported to use the GHC API by David Waern 2006-2008

 This is on Ubuntu Linux 11.10.
