I could reproduce this with

    stage2/ghc-inplace --interactive
    :set -I. -Istage1 -cpp -fglasgow-exts -package ghc
    :load main/Main.hs
    :main -B/home/ian/ghc/6.6-branch/build --help  -- sometimes more than once

in an old 6.6 branch compiler/, but having updated it I no longer can. I
can't reproduce it in the HEAD either. I haven't seen a reply to your
message, but it looks like the problem is now fixed regardless.
