GHC compilation error (re-post).

I deleted the Haskell Platform installation, manually removed all traces of
GHC and the Hakell Platform from my registry and various folders, then
re-installed the Haskell Platform. I created a folder under the 'C:\'
drive, copied my .hs files there, changed to that subfolder started ghci.
The file loaded without error. This seems like a problem the developers
might address in the next release?
Thanks again for the help.
