I would consider that a serious bug.

The Haskell Platform is not like a standard user application, where it  
would be reasonable to have only one version installed at a time.  If  
you are a software developer, it is frequently essential to have  
several different versions of the development environment (compiler +  
libraries) installed simultaneously, so that you can adequately  
support users who have different versions of your own software.
