The failure was on ghc-6.4 using runhaskell as provided by the
compiler distribution. The OS was 10.4.2. The problem was also
reported to the ghc buglist as bug number 1249527.
The problem is fixed in the two ghc-6.4.1 snapshots I've built:
ghc-126.96.36.19950804 and 20050806.
I haven't tested the separate cabal distribution yet. I''l try to
in the next couple of days.
