Somewhat related: If I click on Control.Monad.Error, I get... an error. 
File not found, to be exact.

It seems that the Haddock page is expecting this module to be in 
doc/libraries/ghc-mtl, when it is in fact in doc/libraries/mtl. I don't 
know if this glitch is Windows-specific, but everything in the ghc-mtl 
package appears to be broken. (So... most of Control.Monad then.) I have 
GHC 6.10.3; is this already a known problem? Or is my installation 
broken somehow?
