It's working fine for me (after applying the patch I submitted), on
Debian Lenny (which currently comes with ghc 6.8.2, gcc 4.2.4) and the
source from Hackage. Source from the darcs repository also works fine
(after applying the same patch).

I *am* getting an application crash sometimes when I close my
application, but I have not yet been able to track that down so I'm not
100% sure it's due to hs-plugins.
