[Haskell-cafe] Haskell Platform: failed to parse output of 'ghc-pkg dump'

I'm having trouble installing Haskell Platform on Windows.  After the
install, I run "cabal update", which appears to work: 00-index.tar.gz
is deposited in C:/Documents and Settings/<user>/Application
Data/cabal/packages/hackage.haskell.org.  However, when I try to
"cabal install" anything, I get:

cabal.exe: failed to parse output of 'ghc-pkg dump'

"ghc-pkg dump --global" appears to run just fine.

Ideas?  Suggestions?
