runghc screws up terminal buffering mode and doesn't reset it
If I use runghc to run a Haskell script that reads from stdin, my terminal gets put into a strange buffering mode. This makes the script essentially unusable: characters are echoed twice, and Backspace and EOF don't work. The state is not even reset afterwards, so future non-Haskell programs act strangely as well.
$ cat cat.hs main = putStr =<< getContents $ stty speed 38400 baud; line = 0; eol = M-^?; eol2 = M-^?; swtch = M-^?; iutf8 $ runghc cat.hs hheelllloo ^D^?^D^D^C cat.hs: exception :: GhcException $ stty speed 38400 baud; line = 0; eol = M-^?; eol2 = M-^?; swtch = M-^?; min = 1; time = 0; iutf8 -icanon
There is no problem if the script is compiled with ghc instead of interpreted with runghc.
I'm using ghc 6.8.2-2ubuntu1 on hardy amd64.
