[Haskell-cafe] Access violation when stack haddock haskell-src-exts since LTS 12.0

Hi cafe,

Is there anyone on this list that can explain how to replace the haddock 
executable to solve the problem below? I replaced some haddock binary 
(which I build adding haddock-api-2.20.0 to my global stack config and 
doing stack install haddock), and I now have:

$ ~/.stack/programs/x86_64-linux/ghc-8.4.3/bin/haddock --version
Haddock version 2.20.0, (c) Simon Marlow 2006
Ported to use the GHC API by David Waern 2006-2008

This seems to be the latest Haddock release (and I am using Stack 1.7.1 
which is also the latest), but my `stack haddock` build still results 
the same error as below (ExitFailure (-11)).
