Ok, I guess the easiest way to reproduce is:

   0. curl http://searchpath.org/searchpath/SearchPath.hs > SearchPath.hs
   1. ghc --make -main-is SearchPath SearchPath.hs -o sp
   2. darcs get http://pass.net/s/repo pass.net
   3. cd pass.net
   4. ..\sp ghci  -DINTERACTIVE -isrc --internet http://searchpath.org/default.map src/Main.hs
   5. main
   6. open firefox or IE to http://localhost:8000

Searchpath will take care of downloading all the required libraries 
into the .haskell_cache directory.
Normally hitting 'e' at this point should exit main and return you 
to the ghci shell, but that doesn't appear to be working in 6.4.2 
either or responds so slowly as to effectiveyl be the same.

Note: What appears to be happenning is that the whole thing is just 
sloowwww under 6.4.2.  It appears to be doing the right thing, but at 
such a slow pace as to be unusable.
