Bug in Cabal?

I couldn't seem to logon to the trac to report this. I'm working on windows
(not linux as the chmod might suggest).
zlib-0.5.0.0>runghc Setup.hs build
Preprocessing library zlib-0.5.0.0...
ghc-6.10.1\bin\ar.exe: creating dist\build\libHSzlib-0.5.0.0.a
Setup.hs: ..\..\haskell_packages\doc\zlib-0.5.0.0\.copyFile920.tmp: copyFile:
permission denied (Access is denied.)
Cabal seesm to create certain things as read only. I can work around this by
chmod a+w ..\ThirdParty\haskell_packages\zlib-0.5.0.0\ghc-6.10.1\include\*
chmod a+w ..\ThirdParty\haskell_packages\doc\zlib-0.5.0.0\*
I suspect most people haven't tripped over this as once something is installed
they don't tend to install it again.
