#199: GHCI Startup Crash with HP 2012.2.0.0 on 64bit OS X 10.6
 Reporter:  guest   |       Owner:  dons      
     Type:  defect  |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  major   |   Milestone:  2012.4.0.0
Component:  GHC     |    Keywords:            
 Installation of the HP appears to have succeeded and things seem to
 compile and work fine, but GHCI frequently crashes on startup. Here:

 GHCi, version 7.4.1: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/  :? for help[[BR]]
 Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.[[BR]]
 Loading package integer-gmp ... linking ... done.[[BR]]
 Loading package base ... linking ... done.[[BR]]
 Segmentation fault[[BR]]

 There's a 2-3 second delay between the last message and the segfault.
 Trying to invoke GHCI a couple of times eventually succeeds and results in
 a working REPL. I have reproduced this on two machines that ran the
 previous version just fine.
