Thanks for these reports. The first one is now fixed in CVS. For the
second, you need to import the Haskell 98 module List to get zip4.
The CVS version now looks in both Data.List and List.

These are present in more recent versions of Hugs.

A known bug, but unlikely to be fixed soon. You can work around it with
explicit signatures. Sorry.

foreign import wrapper is documented in the FFI spec. The Hugs User's
Guide has a section "Compiling modules that use the Foreign Function
Interface" that explains how to prepare FFI modules for use with Hugs.
