Deriving regression or bad code?

It's really a bug. I've fixed it in my tree, but I'm at 2.8 and don't have time to validate etc. So I'm doubtful that I'll be in time to get a fix into 6.12.1, alas.
Well, maybe I can build a patch and send it to Simon/Ian for testing. I'll try to do that if it's important to you.
it's bit of an exotic case because of the higher-kindedness so I don't think it'll bite too man people
There's a good workaround: use "standalone deriving".
