Thank you. I'm happy to help anyway I can. I'll look more into it today.

Hi Jake, welcome! 


Congrats, you ran into a "real world" bug. :) I created an issue to 

track it: . 


Like Peter says, it's probably a good place to make a fix. 

Unfortunately it's likely a Bash bug, not a Haskell bug. Probably 

some variable in needs quoting. 


Build bugs are actually always important, so if you don't have a chance 

to get to this, I'll do it this week some time.
