Comment:

That's odd; we use Cabal in GHC itself, so we compile it all the time.

Does the same thing happen with GHC 6.10? You might want to remove all .hi files, just in case there's some kind of out-of-date-ness fooling the recompilation checker.

If it works in 6.10, we'll probably treat this as won't-fix because we won't release another version of 6.8. If it fails in 6.10, please can you describe exactly how to reproduce it? Many thanks.

Simon
