Before I file a bug maybe someone might recognize the following error
and knows if I should blame GHC or someone at Apple. When trying to
use the Network.BSD.getHostByName function ghci exits with a bus
error. The same thing happens with ghc --make and runghc.

I'm using a Mac running Snow Leopard and GHC 6.10.4 from the MacOSX
platform installer together with network-188.8.131.52. Never had any
problems with this function before my upgrade to Snow Leopard. All
other GHC functionality seems to be ok.
Should I file a bug or is this something already known?
