Hi Mike, Sigbjorn, Simon,

Thanks so much for the pointers. Sigbjorn's suggestion to check out the patch
was what finally fixed my problem. BTW, ghci still does work for me.

I get this lovely message:

F:\stuff>ghci -package win32 hello.lhs
C:\ghc-5.02\bin\ghc.exe: file `P?B' does not exist

The ? is acutally a spade symbol in my command window. Anyway, I hope that stops
the stupid complaints from my direction for a while. And now I know what and
where I should be looking for the bug list. SourceForge has just enough of a bug
list to fool me into thinking that's where I should be looking.

Thanks Again,
John Heron
