Good... if anything acts strangely, just yell.

When you say "6.01" from cvs, you are probably referring to the STABLE 
branch of the CVS. The stable branch will be released as "GHC 6.0.1" in 
a few days.
My copy reports 6.0.1 throughout, where does it say 6.1?

On the other hand, the HEAD branch of the CVS will be released as GHC 
6.2 in a few months (?); in the meantime, it should advertise itself as 
GHC 6.1.
