[Haskell-cafe] Cabal problem re. haskelldb-hdbc-mysql

the package http://hackage.haskell.org/package/haskelldb-hdbc-mysql/ the
use of HDBC <2.3.0
I'm using cabal-install 0.14, and with a fresh install (no packages already
installed), cabal-install tries to install HDBC-2.1.1 instead of, say,

The problem is that HDBC-2.1.1 is old (2009) and does not compile.

When I download haskelldb-hdbc-mysql manually, change the dependency and
then install, it compiles fine.

Is the dependency ill-declared, or is that a cabal problem?
