Description

This bug was filed on the Debian bug tracker at http://bugs.debian.org/580568 by Josh Triplett:

Haskell allows module names containing the apostrophe character ('). GHC handles this just fine (import Mod'ule), and ghci will handle such a module if specified on the command line, but the :m command considers it a syntax error.
