Thanks for the report!

The problem is that the bindists are made with a haddock that makes
platform independent haddock files (which means we treat Int as being
64-bit), but the current release doesn't understand that (on 32-bit
platforms it tries to read Ints as 32-bit).

There should be a new haddock release shortly, which fixes that as well
as an HTML link bug. Or you can get the latest source with darcs from
