[darcs-users] Error on systems with case insensitive filesystems

Is it normal to see this error, when running a darcs 2.2.0 binary on a
OSX system (case insensitive filesystem) and with a hashed repository?
$ darcs wh -sl
darcs failed: Text.Regex.Posix.String died: (ReturnCode 14,"empty
Without -l works just fine:
$ darcs wh -s
If I freshly get the repo, it all works fine, until I build the
project, which creates a lot of files under a build directory,
including fetching a full svn repository in there and building it. At
that point (when all is built), if I run darcs wh -sl, I get that
error. After that, even if I clean the build and remove the build
directory completely, darcs wh -sl keeps giving the above error. Which
goes away if I get a fresh repo again.
I was under the impression that with darcs 2 and using a hashed repo,
I should not see that kind of error on a system with a case
insensitive filesystem. On linux with ext3 I never see this issue.
