GHCi can't see 'atexit', can't load module

If I build a package (using cabal etc.) and try to load such
package with 'ghci -package name' the problem persists. But, of course,
there are many workarounds.

Since I don't see this problem with other functions, and I see no
reason for this to happen, I imagine this is a small bug. If it's
not, I'll just remove 'atexit' from packages I have on hackage.
