[Haskell] problems with Haskell 98's record system

is there any web resource which describes the problems with Haskell 98's 
record system in a compact form?  The Curry people are about to adopt (parts 
of) this module system and I warned them that many consider it flawed.  Alas, 
I'm not an expert in this area, so I cannot give much good arguments in this 
respect.  Therefore, I would be happy if someone could point me to a resource 
describing the problems or even telling the Curry people about the problems 
on the Curry Mailing List [1].

Best wishes,
