Ya!  Haddock's insistence on actually compiling the module (rather than just generating documentation) was the source of one of our most puzzling bugs ever.

(1) Compile library with ghc.
(2) Generate docs with Haddock.
(3) Link library.

Who would ever suspect that the code got recompiled with different options in that middle step?
