Cabal-Install Update Problems

I'm trying to use cabal-install on two machines, Debian Sid and OS X  
10.5, but I am unable to run "update" on either. Most other commands  
seem to work fine, but the networking for "update" gives an error on  
both machines, completely independently:

Downloading package list from server
cabal: recv: resource vanished (Connection reset by peer)

Both machines are using a vanilla Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall  
FVS318v3, a very simple prosumer router. Obviously, the router works  
fine for everything else, and has been running flawlessly for ages.

This is using cabal-install from darcs and the cabal 1.4 branch.

Thanks a bunch for helping,

Jeff Wheeler
