In that case you must have cabal-dev enabled:

 '(haskell-process-type 'cabal-dev)

If you don't have cabal-dev it'll fail. Change this to

 '(haskell-process-type 'ghci)

If it ever breaks, you can always look in the *haskell-process-log*
buffer which shows what was actually sent to/from the piped process.

Does that solve your problem?
