I think this behavior is caused by (or at least related to) the
following GHC bug:


That bug has been fixed for the 6.10 release; my testing indicated
that your program behaves correctly in that version.  See the above
bug report for some suggestions on how to work around the 6.8 getChar

Hope that helps,
