Thanks for the report.

It looks like haddock doesn't like asterisks in this comment. Which is strange because that comment isn't marked as a haddock comment, so why does haddock care?

I've uploaded a "fixed" version.

Comments starting with -- * are in fact Haddock comments, it's a syntax for top-level headers, usually used in the export list. This kind of header appears where Haddock doesn't know what to do with it so it breaks.

I suggest that you either change the * to a different character (such as -) or turn the whole comment to a {- -} style comment at which point I think there should be no problem.

Ah, I forgot about that. Thanks for the explanation, @Fuuzetsu.
