GHC 6.4.1 crash on Windows XP

A freshly installed GHC 6.4.1 on my colleague's PC crashes when I try
to build a package:

runhaskell Setup.hs build

The effect is easily reproduceable (it shows up on *any* package
that I try to build).

Does anyone have any idea of what might be wrong here?


For the record, the information given by Windows at the point of crash:

Exception Information
Code: 0xc0000005        Flags: 0x0
Record: 0x0      Address: 0x0

System Information
Windows NT 5.1 Build: 2600

Module 1
Image Base: 0x00400000  Image Size: 0x0
Checksum: 0x0088d2bd    Time Stamp: 0x433058b8

(The IP and SP already point somewhere inside Dr. Watson, as far
as I can see, so I don't think the registers and stack contents
are of any use at this point.)
