[Haskell-cafe] Installing pandoc / json with ghc 6.12.1

I recently tried to install the latest version of pandoc on my debian
stable box (with ghc 6.12.1) using virthualenv as sandboxing
mechanism. But instead of a normal installation, compilation of the
json package (more specifically the Text.JSON.Parsec module) hangs and
causes ghc to consume around 2GB of RAM (out of 3GB) and the system to
swap and hang.

For reference ... I just created a plain virthualenv (for sandboxing)
and after that ran

(tmp) foo at bar:/tmp$ cabal install json

I also tried if this has something to do with version 0.5 (the latest
version) only, to no avail.

Are there other users of pandoc/json or related packages who
encountered/solved this issue? Am I doing something wrong here?

Best regards,
