Still very new here.  I'm trying to install HaXml and I've updated 
cabal.  I see that a similar issue was posted recently as a bug 
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/4513 but one that's 
supposedly fixed; do I need to wait for something or can this be fixed 
some other way?  I think I've posted all necessary version numbers below:
