Hi Kyle, thanks for the thoughtful analysis.

After a bit of tinkering, I realized there are two things going on
here, only one of which I fully understand:

1. My core functional issue is that =comint-prompt-regexp= isn't set
   up to handle the "Prelude| " entries or the repeated prompts.  The
   other patches I submitted were unnecessary.

2. The =comint-prompt-regexp= gets default values from somewhere I
   don't understand and can't find with a quick source grep.

In ob-haskell, we set =comint-prompt-regexp= to the (undefined)
haskell-prompt plus "or optional-lambda":

  (defvar haskell-prompt-regexp)

  (defun org-babel-execute:haskell (body params) ...
  (setq-local comint-prompt-regexp
    (concat haskell-prompt-regexp "\\|^λ?> "))))

That causes an evaluation error that prevents the first source block
evaluation but, strangely, that also results in this mess in the
*haskell* buffer on subsequent evaluations:

: "^\\*?[[:upper:]][\\._[:alnum:]]*\\(?:
\\*?[[:upper:]][\\._[:alnum:]]*\\)*\\( λ\\)?> "

=comint-prompt-regexp='s variable documentation calls out much simpler
regexps that do basically the same thing as the one above and handles
the repeated "Prelude| " entries.  This one is based off the Canonical
Lisp example:

: "^[^>\n]+\\(> \\)?"

I've attached a patch against git master that results in fewer
undefined variable errors and depends less default-variable magic.
Now, =haskell-prompt-regexp= and =comint-prompt-regexp= are explicitly
set using defaults that can be M-x customized, and the default value
handles the repeated "Prelude| " entries without breaking the original
"λ> " prompt handling.
