A package does not install in Windows, but it should

Firstly, my apologies if this is not the right place to report this
problem, but my guess is that is a cabal related problem.
I wrote a package and is now uploaded in Hackage . I do not have any
problems installing it (cabal install) in my usual computer (debian). I
tried other computer running windows, and it does not build reporting the
hatex-guide-184.108.40.206 failed while unpacking the package. The exception was:
user error (Invalid file name in tar archive:
I am using a custom script and this module here (Text.LaTeX.Guide.Aux) is
generated by the Setup.hs code.
Suspecting that it may fail in other computers as well, I have tried to
install it in yet another maching (ubuntu). It installed just fine.
Therefore, I am seeing different behaviors depending on the system, when
the library really does not use any platform specific feature. It should be
portable if I am not missing anything. Anyway, note that the error is
"while unpacking the package". Mysterious to me.
I would gladly look through the Cabal code and look in which step is the
error thrown, but I am not familiarized with the code of the library and it
may be a big task for such a simple (in appearance) error. However, I can
tell that I didn't try (yet).
Any help is appreciated.
