Reinier pointed out that this issue is well-known.

The question is if it's easy to fix.  It's research time, I think, time to ask
Haskell gurus what to do about it.

An alternative solution would be just to give up and wont-fix.  When we finally
solve issue1288, just require GHC 6.10.  This may make life difficult for Debian
folks, but I think if we do it after we've already done a hashed-storage release
we can just say "sorry, use Darcs 2.4".  I suspect this the route we'll end up
