Malcolm, Simon, and others,
Thanks for the answers.

I guess I've been fixated so much on trying to adapt to 'functional' 
programming and to actually understanding how these 'magical' Monads 
work that I've looked over this obvious mistake.

And to think I've actally pointed this very same mistake out to 
loads of students in the "imperative programming" course ! 
(Yes,.. I'm blushing...)

Thanks again,
Kind regards, Alex...
