There was a bug in hscolour-1.8 whereby many top-level definitions
failed to get an anchor - it is fixed in 1.9.  If you have a
reproducible case where it still fails, please let me know.

However, there is also a more long-standing issue with class methods,
which never get an anchor.  This is primarily because they are tricky to
recognise, purely lexically, in a reliable way.  In any case, it is rare
for the source defn of a class method to contain any more information
than the generated haddock (because the method only has code if there is
a default defn, and in most cases, you can't navigate to the instance
