Show instance in System.Event.Manager causes conflicts

System.Event.Manager  contains the following type alias and Show
-- | Callback invoked on I/O events.
type IOCallback = FdKey -> Event -> IO ()
instance Show IOCallback where
show _ = "IOCallback"
This specialized instance conflicts with the more general instance Show (a
-> b) defined in Text.Show.Functions.
Stefan found this conflict when trying to compile the checkers package on
ghc 7.0.3. I suspect it will arise with other packages as well.
My suggestion is to remove the specialized Show instance and instead import
Text.Show.Functions as needed.
