Just checked
Removed from ~/.stack/programs/x86_64-linux both
- ghc.7.10.2 (directory)
- ghc-7.10.2.installed

And reran
$ stack setup

The messages seemed to say something the the effect "already downloaded"
Spent some  time setting up...

And now
$ stack ghci
seems to be working.

Also now all references to the old username
on grepping in ~/.stack seem to have vanished

So is this ok or improper... ???
May the experts opine!
