I just tried this

Prelude> putStrLn "\£"
ghc: panic! (the 'impossible' happened)
  (GHC version 6.10.4 for i386-unknown-linux):
charType: '\163'

Please report this as a GHC bug:  http://www.haskell.org/ghc/reportabug

So perhaps I should put in a bug report, as that shouldn't happen (it
doesn't with some other characters I tried), unless anyone has a different
idea? I'm running Arch Linux with xmonad and using roxterm, so perhaps it's
something to do with my setup?
