I am encountering a strange issue while trying to read a string into an

On windows 7 64bit, I have:

> read "18780189038289e49" :: Integer

On linux (64bit, libgmp.so.3.5.2) I have:

> read "18780189038289e49" :: Integer
*** Exception: Prelude.read: no parse

That's weird and I really have no clue what's going on. I use ghci 7.4.2 on
linux and 7.4.1 on windows.

What am I doing wrong ?
