runghc badly broken

Hi all,

I'm trying to use runghc (6.4 release version, redhat linux), but it
appears to be badly broken. It only processes the first argument given
to it, so while
> runghc Foo.hs

with Foo.hs being simply
main = putStrLn "hello"

works just fine, while for instance
> runghc -v1 Foo.hs
Loading package base-1.0 ... linking ... done.

    Failed to load interface for `Main':
        Could not find module `Main':
          it is not a module in the current program, or in any known package.
Leaving GHCi.

manages to be 1-verbose but doesn't find the file, and
> runghc Foo.hs -v1

executes the file alright, but forgets verbosity. I can't imagine this
is the intended behavior?
