[Haskell-beginners] Confused by GLFW and more

This does fix the problem. Thank you. But raises a new question. Since
that list was being constructed like this

 where trialList oldps =
          [[(h' i) , (p' i)] | i <- [1 ..], i < tn]

it should have only had two elements when tn = 3. So, I assume that I
am getting hit by a laziness issue, but how is it that I should have
known that using mapM_ wouldn't have force thelist to exist in a
finite form?

By the way, I just now use "take (tn -1)" and all is good, but I would
like to understand this issue better so I can avoid similar pitfalls
in the future.

Thx, Britt
