Hi Gregory, you may be happy (I think :) to know I'm having this  
problem too on Mac OS X, so it's not just you.  So far, I've found  
that compiling Setup.hs ("ghc --make -o setup Setup.hs") and then  
running the resulting ./setup executable has never caused a problem,  
whereas I get the same waitForProcess error message that you do when  
I use runhaskell.

It would be worthwhile seeing whether using GHCi to invoke Setup.hs  
causes a similar problem.
