I remember that we had problems with HaXml producing empty or truncated 
files, too.

I think with ghc-6.4.1 and HaXml-1.13 this problem was solved. (The 
deprecated stuff is definitely not the cause).

The problem must have been related to the output handle being either 
stdout or a file (and maybe a missing "flush").
