Hi Simon,

Looks like a user error -- I just added the extra symbols to Linker.c's 
SymX table again, and this time it worked fine.  Now we've got 
additional problems about re-loading packages which are already loaded 
by GHCi, but that's another problem.  I suspect Don will be committing 
some changes to GHC to help with that.
