[Haskell-cafe] Parallel cabal install ignores order

I have "jobs: 4" enabled in my cabal config to get parallel installs
with cabal-install >= 1.16.

When I do cabal install --reinstall --force-reinstalls world to
reinstall all packages (e.g. to enable profiling or shared), it fails
after some point, complaining that the required dependency package is
not compiled with the needed flag (for profiling / -dyn).

It looks like for reinstalls, parallel cabal-install simply ignores the
necessary order.

Can somebody confirm this or tell me if this is known?
If not, where should it be reported?
