As far as I know, the package uploaded onto hackage is merely a
cabal-ised version of the old(er) HFuse which I don't believe has been
maintained in quite a while.

The only recent work I know of on the project is that of Will
Thompsons'. A darcs repository can be located here:


I've tested it on 6.8 and it works fine (Will has 6.6 I believe,) and
the HelloFS example should work, but it is still under development
(notably I believe him mentioning that the BindFS example 
has a deadlock issue at the moment.) Testing out that version might
yield better results.
I would recommend contacting him on the matter, since he seems to be
the only person in this project currently. Sorry I couldn't have been
more help.
