[Haskell-cafe] how to upgrade to a new version of Haskell?

I found a bit of an odd problem.

In my configuration, which I haven't modified, the installed copy of cabal
appears in the path earlier than the directory into which executables built
by cabal are installed, meaning that when cabal installs a new version of
itself, that version is not used by default.

That doesn't seem right.

The installed location of cabal: C:\Program Files (x86)\Haskell
Where cabal puts executables: C:\Users\Johan\AppData\Roaming\cabal\bin

I can work around it, sure, but is this a deliberate choice or a blindspot
in the installer?
