Description

I ran into this when trying to ghci a module in the base library (from http://darcs.haskell.org/packages/base), but it seems that ghci just gets confused if System/IO.hs exists under the current directory. For my purposes, it's easy enough to work around by copying the module I actually want to work on out to another directory.

jyasskin-mac:~/Temp/bug jyasskin$ mkdir System
jyasskin-mac:~/Temp/bug jyasskin$ touch System/IO.hs
jyasskin-mac:~/Temp/bug jyasskin$ cp ~/src/ghc/HEAD/ghc/libraries/base/Data/Monoid.hs .
jyasskin-mac:~/Temp/bug jyasskin$ mkdir Data
jyasskin-mac:~/Temp/bug jyasskin$ mv Monoid.hs Data/
jyasskin-mac:~/Temp/bug jyasskin$ ghci Data/Monoid.hs
