module system bug

There appears to be a problem when combinig "hiding" and "qualified"
imports.  Here is an example:

module A where
x = True

module Main(main) where
import qualified A hiding ()
main = print A.x

When loading the second module (Main) Hugs (September 2006) complains
that A.x is not in scope.  It appears that this happens whenever there
is a 'hiding' clause (it does not have to be empty) but it does not
happen if the import is not qualified.
