I thought I'd post this convenience function, since I didn't see an obvious one in base:

Code:
import Prelude hiding (catch)
import Control.Exception
import System.IO.Error hiding (catch)

readl f = catch (getLine >>= return . Just)
                (\e -> if (isEOFErrorType . ioeGetErrorType) e
                         then return Nothing
                         else ioError e)
          >>= \a -> case a of

After ~3 days of looking for a fix, I found it in AndrzejL's Re: Fixing Skype / Thunderbird / Google Earth connection with Firefox on PCLinuxOS-Forums. This is to publicise AndrzejL's technique because I had found it early in the search for a solution and dismissed it as similar to others and/or not closely related to the problem.
