Ticket #6138 (closed bug: wontfix)
GHCI Startup Crash with HP 2012.2.0.0 on 64bit OS X 10.6
This is a migration of HP ticket #199:
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 Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done. Loading package integer-gmp ... linking ... done. Loading package base ... linking ... done. Segmentation fault
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.
Please see the attached crash reporter log in the original ticket: The crash appears to be in the garbage collector.
