I've taken a look at a ticket and I think it should be closed as
invalid, but I hesitate to make that decision on behalf of the GHC
developers. What should I do in these circumstances, just draw it to
your attention? I have added a comment to the ticket explaining why.

http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/29 is the ticket in question.
