Panic: Loading temp shared object failed
I ran into a panic when updating
singletons for 7.10. I'm clueless as to what's going on here, so sorry for not minimizing the test case. A little testing has me convinced it's Template Haskell in some way.

You will see something like
ghc: panic! (the 'impossible' happened) (GHC version 188.8.131.5250123 for x86_64-apple-darwin): Loading temp shared object failed: dlopen(/var/folders/ps/s45r2x1s6r15ws78py_zypl00000gn/T/ghc45837_0/libghc45837_1.dylib, 5): Symbol not found: _mtlzuJNaGzzEkFfL43R3LZZNRlPRm_ControlziMonadziReaderziClass_DZCMonadReader_con_info Referenced from: /var/folders/ps/s45r2x1s6r15ws78py_zypl00000gn/T/ghc45837_0/libghc45837_1.dylib Expected in: flat namespace in /var/folders/ps/s45r2x1s6r15ws78py_zypl00000gn/T/ghc45837_0/libghc45837_1.dylib Please report this as a GHC bug: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/reportabug
I've observed this on a Mac, but Travis has the same problem, so it's not strictly Mac-specific. You can see representative Travis output here.
Why am I doing such a crazy thing? It's part of the
singletons test suite, where it's important to test the output of a run of ghc with
-ddump-splices. Getting the test cases to compile against the built-but-not-yet-installed
singletons object files should work with
-this-package-key. I'm sure there's a better way to structure a testsuite, but this general technique works (with
-package-name instead of
-this-package-key) with 7.8.
