GHC 6.4 panics while trying to link recursive hs-boot
The problem is illustrated in the attached tar.gz file.
Just typing "make" should hopefully reporduce the problem.
I am using a Mandrake 10.1 linux distribution.

Thanks for a well-characterised bug report.

The program is erroneous, becuase module B is not imported 
(It's only SOURCE imported, which isn't enough, because the 
source module will never be compiled.)   I'll add 
documentation on this point.

I've fixed the HEAD to check for this.

Actually, doing so showed up another bug, which I also fixed.
