Hi all,

I'm having some trouble with the email authentication that the yesod
scaffolding tool sets up for me.  I'm using the Yesod 0.8 beta and ghc

I created a new yesod with the yesod tool and a sqlite database.  I
immediately compiled it (cabal configure && cabal build) without
changing anything and ran the "test" binary.  I navigated to the
webpage and tried to register using my email address.  The email I got
contains this link:


But when I click it, the webpage reports:

  Internal Server Error
  Prelude.read: no parse

Do I need to set something else up to get this working?

Thanks for your help.  I'm loving yesod so far (already deployed my
first Yesod app! Luckily it doesn't need auth :)
