Thanks, I'll take a look at it.

By removing the above line from your .emacs.
inf-haskell behaves differently (most importantly it uses compile.el rather
than cooking its own.  The upside is that you can use C-x `, the downside
is that it probably suffers from incompatibility between different versions
of compile.el (it was already very different between Emacs and XEmacs and
Emacs-CVS has yet-another-very-different version)).
So I've tried to make sure old things still work.  I recommend you try
inf-haskell and tell me what problems you encounter with it.
