GHCi fails to load on Windows 98 for me. Right after the message 'Loading package base ... linking ... done.' I get a windows error box containing roughly this error : "GHC has caused an error in module GHC.exe at 0167:00c82e26" This error occurs with GHCi version 6.6 on a rather (very) old P1 233 box. The compiler itself works flawlessly, only the interactive prompt fails.

Please note similarities between this error and bug report #970.

The fix in ticket 970 appears to take care of this problem as well; at least, it did for me.
